The Chaillot Palace was built in the XVIth century by Catherine de Medicis as a pleasure house on the Chaillot hill. Henriette of England bought this castle to convert it into a convent : the Visitation convent. Then, Napol?on demolished it to engineered a palace.
During the XIXth century, it was re-built and called Trocadero Palace in reference to a battle wun against the fort of Cadix in Spain. It is on this palace that the actual Chaillot Palace was built.
The Chaillot Palace is composed of 2 wings that go down to the Seine. Between these 2 wings : the Human Rights Esplanade (where you could meet lot of skateboarders and rollerskaters). From the esplanade the view of the Eiffel Tower and the Champs de Mars is wonderful.
The Chaillot Palace houses several museums (the Man Museum -Mus?e de l'Homme-, the Film Museum -Mus?e du Cin?ma- and the Navy Museum -Mus?e de la Marine-). Do not hesitate to visit them !
