  • This government edifice is a part of the Domaine royal palace very close to Louvre. It houses government offices and is not accessible to public. Just pass through and proceed to terrific gardens...  more »

  • To say that my father has passed his competitions to the Council of State taking advantage of the high view on the Royal Palace. That was a certain time because now I think it's unthinkable to see future candidates in this place again.
