The palace was built for Henri IV?s wife - the queen Maria Medici. It was planned to be identical to Pitti palace in Florence, so she wanted, having sigh for her fatherland. And after her husband?s death, she moved to live here, but it didn?t last long, she was asked to leave the country. After that the palace was named as Luxembourg palace, as it was in its beginning. During its existence it was as prison and during war here was even located German headquarters. I don?t know if you get in, because we just walked through large gardens and enjoy palace from outside. I liked its reflection in garden?s basin.
