Palais Bourbon - National Assembly, Paris: 15 reviews and 19 photos
The French parliament building, l'Assemblée Nationale, was built in the 18th century by the royal family, the Bourbons. The building was seized by the government after the French Revolution and turned into the parliament building. So it is somewhat of an irony that the name of the building, Palais Bourbon, refers to the royal family which was ousted by the revolution. The façade's Roman peristyle strategically faces place de la Concorde, with the matching façade of Eglise de la Madeleine at the other end.
Address: 33, Quai d'Orsay, Paris 7e
