  Hotel de Ville, Paris
by Andraf

The beautiful building which serves as Paris City Hall is a 19th century reconstruction of the 17th century town hall that was burned to the ground during the Commune of 1871. The building overlooks a charming pedestrian square, a nice place to walk and a nice place to skate in winter when a ice-skating rink is to be found here. The square was once a site for public executions.
