Built in the 17th century for the renowned Cardinal Richelieu by the royal architect Jacques Lemercier, the Palais-Royal is a former King’s residence located in the very heart of Paris. This palace is situated in the prestigious 1st arrondissement, only a few steps from the Louvre and the Opéra. Today the Palais-Royal complex accommodates the Ministry of Culture, the Council of State, the Constitutional Council, the National Library of France, the Comédie Française state theatre, as well as the Columns of Buren, a modern art installation created by the French artist Daniel Buren in the inner courtyard in 1986.
The Palais-Royal shopping arcades constructed by order of Louis Philippe II, the Duke of Orléans, in the late 18th century, made the Palais-Royal one of the most important markets and hub for social life in Paris. They now house luxury boutiques and the famed Le Grand Véfour restaurant where it’s believed to be the place Napoleon proposed to Joséphine.
