Eiffel Tower

WhatsApp Image 2023-03-30 at 12.44.25

Come and discover the Eiffel Tower in a unique upward journey in the world, where emotions carry you away. From the forecourt to the summit, you will discover multiple sensations: on all floors, an extraordinary and unique view of Paris, the thrills of the incredible glass floor on the 1st floor, the incredible ascent by the stairs or by the elevators, the unspeakable sensation of amazement caused by the tons of iron hanging over you when you are on the forecourt. The vertigo that grips you when you come out of the elevator at the top, when you see the walkers of the Champs-de-Mars and the traffic of cars along the Trocadero! And whether it is day or evening, whether in summer or in winter, the Eiffel Tower experience is renewed!

It is declared of public utility by a law voted on July 24, 1873 by the National Assembly of 1871; the building was officially completed in 1923. The desire to build this basilica is part of the context of sacral recharging and its construction took place within the framework of the establishment of a “moral order” following the events of the Paris Commune, of which Montmartre was one of the highlights.

Designed by Napoleon I as a Greek temple dedicated to the glory of his Great Army in 1806, the building was almost transformed in 1837 into a railway station, the first in Paris, before becoming a church in 1845. Under the pediment, the inscription in Latin “D.O.M.” SVB. INVOC. S. M. MAGDALENAE” (“Domino Optimo Maximo sub invocatione Sanctae Mariae Magdalenae”) means “To the most good and great God, under the invocation of Saint Mary Magdalene”.

It is a department of the National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), under the joint supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy.

Jacques Chirac, then Head of State, wanted to create a new museum at the Quai Branly, and to this end had the ethnographic collections of the Musée de l’Homme transferred there, which closed for six years of renovation work in 2009. Another part of the collections joins the MuCEM. The work involves 96.6 million euros of investment by the Ministries of Higher Education and Research (95%) and Culture (5%).

Catacombs of Paris

WhatsApp Image 2023-03-28 at 11.20.04

The Catacombs of Paris  are underground ossuaries in Paris, which hold the remains of more than six million people in a small part of a tunnel network built to consolidate Paris’s ancient stones quarries. Extending south from the Barrière d’Enfer (“Gate of Hell”) former city gate, this ossuary was created as part of the effort to eliminate the city’s overflowing cemeteries. Preparation work began shortly after a 1774 series of basement wall collapses around the Holy Innocents’ Cemetery added a sense of urgency to the cemetery-eliminating measure, and from 1786, nightly processions of covered wagons transferred remains from most of Paris’s cemeteries to a mine shaft opened near the Rue de la Tombe-Issoire. 

The ossuary remained largely forgotten until it became a novelty-place for concerts and other private events in the early 19th century; after further renovations and the construction of accesses around Place Denfert-Rochereau, it was opened to public visitation from 1874. Since 2013, the Catacombs have numbered among the fourteen City of Paris Museums managed by Paris Musées. Although the ossuary comprises only a small section of the underground mines of Paris, Parisians currently often refer to the entire tunnel network as the catacombs.

Palace of Versailles


The Palace of Versailles is a former royal residence built by King Louis XIV located in Versailles, about 19 kilometers (12 mi) west of Paris, France. The palace is owned by the French Republic and since 1995 has been managed, under the direction of the French Ministry of Culture, by the Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles. About 15,000,000 people visit the palace, park, or gardens of Versailles every year, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world.

Louis XIII built a simple hunting lodge on the site of the Palace of Versailles in 1623. With his passing came Louis XIV who expanded the château into the beginnings of a palace that went through several changes and phases from 1661 to 1715. It was a favorite residence for both kings, and in 1682, Louis XIV moved the seat of his court and government to Versailles, making the palace the de facto capital of France. This state of affairs was continued by Kings Louis XV and Louis XVI, who primarily made interior alterations to the palace, but in 1789 the royal family and capital of France returned to Paris. For the rest of the French Revolution, the Palace of Versailles was largely abandoned and emptied of its contents, and the population of the surrounding city plummeted.

Napoleon I, following his coronation, used Versailles as a summer residence from 1810 to 1814, but did not restore it. Following the Bourbon Restoration, when the king was returned to the throne, he resided in Paris and it was not until the 1830s that meaningful repairs were made to the palace. A museum of French history was installed within it, replacing the apartments of the southern wing.

The palace and park were designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979 for its importance as the center of power, art, and science in France during the 17th and 18th centuries. The French Ministry of Culture has placed the palace, its gardens, and some of its subsidiary structures on its list of culturally significant monuments.

Jardin d'acclimatation


Opened on 6 October 1860 by Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie, this Paris zoo was originally known as Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation, where plants and animals from the colonies could acclimatise to France’s weather conditions. It was directed by Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, son of the naturalist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, until his death in 1861. During the Siege of Paris (1870–1871), many of the animals in the zoo were cooked and served by chef Alexandre Étienne Choron due to wartime deprivation. From 1877 until 1912, the Jardin Zoologique d’Acclimatation was converted to l’Acclimatation Anthropologique. In mid-colonialism, the curiosity of Parisians was attracted to the customs and lifestyles of foreign peoples. Nubians, Bushmen, Zulus, and many other African peoples were “exhibited” in a human zoo. The exhibitions were a huge success. The number of visitors to the Jardin doubled, reaching the million mark.

In 1931, around 100 other New Caledonian Kanaks, were put on display at the Jardin d’Acclimatation in Paris, and then sold to another zoo. From 1931 on, the last anthropological exhibition was closed down and since then the zoo – now the Jardin d’Acclimatation – has become a family-oriented leisure park, focusing on children’s activities. Among the attractions are many fair-like activities, including mini-rollercoasters, swing rides, and a collection of farm animals and birds.
