Palais-Royal, Paris
The Palais-Royal.


Originally built by Cardinal Richelieu as his residence, this palace facing the Louvre was later successively occupied by Louis XIV, his brother, and other members of the House of Orléans.

Today it houses the Council of State, the Constitutional Council, the Ministry of Culture, and the National Library. The adjacent Palais Brion is the seat of the Comédie-Française
