Hotel de Ville

Hotel de Ville


A beautiful building and stately building, The Hotel de Ville is the seat of the city government and also houses popular exhibitions. Originally completed in 1628, the renaissance-style hotel was destroyed in 1871 during the Paris Commune. It was reconstructed to the original specification shortly thereafter. It is decorated by statues representing famous Parisians and French cities; boasts an interior in the Empire style; and sits on Place de Greve (now called Place de l'Hôtel de Ville), which has a bloody history that belies its present cheerful atmosphere.
