The view of travellers that in France virtually any building is an architectural master near the truth. Such a statement is also applicable to the Mayor of Paris, Hotel-de-Ville (Otel-de-Ville), the majesty palace of Neorences, located in the 4th district of the capital.
In 1141, on one of the beachs of the Sen River, French buyers built a port of Greve near which there was an area known in history as Greve. The elders of the coup d ' études had settled in one of the houses, whose location in 1553, according to King Francis I, had been given to the City of Paris.
The construction of the Hotel de Vill on the project of the Italian architect Boccador lasted about 95 years and ended in the time of Ludovic XIII. Over time, the Gravsky Square, the witness of the most brutal executions, was renamed and became the name of the place de l'Hotel-de-Ville.
The approach to power in the Paris Commune and the revolutionary strife led to a fire in May 1871 in Ratuš on the communal side, which, fleeing from the soldiers, began to burn documents, the destructive power of the fire left only stone walls. The new mayor ' s reconstruction began two years later, and in 1882, it was officially opened.
The outside building is a copy of a burnt stitch, but the internal design has undergone significant changes. The Palace, whose beauty is admired by tourists around the world, has been designed by the French architects of Ballu and Deperthes, stealing facades and roofs of the building by the symbols of the major cities of France and the statues of 108 known Parisians, including Mollier, Volter, Eugène Su, Charles Perro and Cardinal Richelier. Also on the central tower of the facade, you can see the old clock around women ' s figures symbolizing work, education and other virtues. There are sculptures of Arts and Science at the entrance.
Internal palace management corresponds to the impetuous and luxurious impurity of the ampir, with the count ceilings, bright turns, frescas, old furniture and multiple crystal chandeliers. The authors of the artwork of the interior are the most famous French artists of the nineteenth century.
