THE LOUVRE NEIGHBOURHOOD

THE MOST LUXURIOUS AND HISTORIC NEIGHBOURHOOD OF PARIS, SECONDS AWAY FROM PAVILLON LOUVRE RIVOLI

DISCOVER

THE LOUVRE & ITS NEIGHBOURS

 

The Louvre Museum, inaugurated in 1793 under the name "Central Museum of the Arts of the Republic" in the Palais du Louvre, the former royal residence located in the center of Paris, is the largest museum of art and antiques in the world today. Just next door you will find the Jardin du Palais-Royal, a large Parisian square bordered by four art galleries with architecture dating back to 1633. A few minutes further, you will join the Jardin des Tuileries, and its 25 hectares of greenery.

 

THE LOUVRE

The Louvre Museum, inaugurated in 1793, includes 554,731 works of which 35,000 are exhibited and 264,486 are graphic works. Located a few minutes from the Pavillon Louvre Rivoli, the museum is immediately recognisable by the glass pyramid of its foyer. In 2018, with more than 8 million annual visitors, the Louvre is the most visited museum in the world. Among his most famous pieces are The Mona Lisa, The Venus of Milo, The Crouching Scribe, The Victory of Samothrace and the Code of Hammurabi.

THE JARDIN DU PALAIS-ROYAL

The jardin dates back to 1633 and is just a few seconds away from the entrance of the hotel. It covers a surface area of 20,850 m2, impessive considering its location in the 1st arrondissement, and has since been labeled "remarkable garden". You will find in a small bronze canon inside, which was invented in 1785 by the Sieur Rousseau, engineer in mathematical instruments and watchmaker, whose shop can be found in the Beaujolais gallery.

JARDIN DES TUILERIES

In the 13th century, the land of the Jardin des Tuileries represented tile factories. Later, at the western corners of the garden, Napoleon III built two identical buildings: An "orangerie" in 1852, to the southwest, now hosting a museum of modern art called the Museé de l'Orangerie, and a Jeu de Paume, in 1861 , in the north-west, hosting a museum of contemporary art, the National Gallery of Jeu de Paume. The garden also includes several statues from Cain, Maïllol, Gasq, Louis Lévèque, among others.
