The building on the right bank of the Seine opposite Notre Dame, became the center of municipal institutions in 1357 after its acquisition by Etienne Marcel who was then provost of merchants of Paris.
Between the sixteenth and seventeenth century, from the reign of Francis I. to the one of Louis XIII, large work transformed the building into a Renaissance palace, whose facade was many times destroyed and rebuilt to finally ressemble the one we have today. Political center, the City Hall is a major place of history, from the 1789 Revolution until the liberation of Paris in August 1944.
Nowadays it is the City Hall of Paris , it also hosts art exhibitions related to the city and many visits are organized.
