Great building, and it is interesting to see how "unfinished" it is (un-cut stone on the courtyard facade). Do you know why it was left unfinished? Financial difficulties?

I know one example from Bergen, Norway where one can see the same thing: http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tollbod...rbygningen.JPG The raw stone is in place, but haven't been cut.

I haven't found the reason for this.
It's possible for financial difficulties or due to the lack of time (four cardinals occupied places until the French Revolution).

I'm glad to see a Rohan's palace here again, I will take the opportunity to talk about this family because the Rohan knew how to deal with hôtels particuliers, palaces, castles ... and for personal reasons () I would like to pay a tribute to it


The House of Rohan is one of the most powerful princely families of the Duchy of Brittany. They made ​​build a lot of properties across Europe, including some hôtels particuliers in Paris.

Hôtel de Rohan, near to Hôtel de Soubise
Former Hôtel de Clisson, built by an other powerful breton family, the House of Clisson, and now housing the Archives Nationales. Both are already in this fabolous thread


Hôtel de Rohan-Guéméné, place des Vosges
(already in this UH-MAH-ZING thread too).


Hôtel de Rohan-Montbazon, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Built in 1719 for the duchess of Rohan-Montbazon, sadly refurbished in 1876, apparently now housing some ateliers of Lancôme. (Source : An interesting PDF about the Faubourg Saint-Honoré with the story of all the hôtels particuliers along the avenue)

http://www.actuacity.com/paris-8e-ar...onuments/page3


http://www.monumentum.fr/hotel-rohan...a00088833.html

No photos of the countyard available


Hôtel de Rohan, Boulevard des Invalides.
Former Hôtel de Verteillac, it has been destroyed in the beginning of 20th century, the modern building now houses a departement of Île-de-France region, no architectural interest.



But of course the Rohan have also some hôtels particuliers outside Paris.

Palais des Rohan de Strasbourg, Strasbourg, Alsace
(already in this thread).

Palais Rohan, Bordeaux, Aquitaine.
Rebuilt by Ferdinand Maximilian Mériadec de Rohan, Archbishop of Bordeaux in 1769, instead of the old Archbishopric. It now houses the City Hall of Bordeaux.

Façade on the street side (place Pey Berland) :

Cour d'honneur

Gardens on the courtyard side (Jardin Rohan) :

Inside :

Escalier d'honneur

Grand Salon

Salle à manger (Room to eat ?)

http://visites.aquitaine.fr/salle-a-...u-palais-rohan


Hôtel de Rohan, Soubise, Poitou-Charentes.
The barony of Soubise entered the family of Rohan in 1575 by the marriage of Catherine, heiress of the Counts of Parthenay with René II de Rohan. In the early seventeenth century, she rebuilt the hotel that is in front of the church and called here : Hôtel des Rohan. The hotel was very sparsely inhabited and transformed into hospice then school then the town hall of Soubise in 1985.

Façade and adjoining court.




After the French Revolution, many members of the House of Rohan have migrated across Europe. That's why there are now a few Rohan's hôtels particuliers in the continent including :

Palais Rohan, Prague, Czech Republic.

Sold in the 1800's by a germanic princess to Alain Charles de Rohan, duke of Bouillon and Montbazon, then acquired by his brother Victor de Mériadec who gives the last modifications in 1816 (classical style). It now houses the Czeh Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.

No photos of the inside available but you can check the View Google Maps.


Palais Rohan, Vienna, Austria.
The palace was built in 1864 by Prince Arthur de Rohan. In 1998, it was completely renovated and now offers modern office space and apartments.

Court

And pardon my little off-topic, but among the (numerous) others properties of the House of Rohan, you can also see Josselin Castle, Pontivy Castle, Kerguéhennec Castle, Blain Castle, Rohan Castle of Saverne, Rohan Castle of Mutzig, Rohan Castle of Sychrov in the Czech Republic ...

Josselin Castle, Brittany

Kerguéhennec Castle, Brittany

Rohan Castle of Saverne, Alsace

https://www.flickr.com/search?sort=r...erne%20chateau


Rohan Castle of Sychrov, Bohemia (Czech Republic)
Built by the same prince of Rohan who bought the Palais Rohan of Vienna. The prince emigrated from France after the French Revolution and gave his allegeance to the emperor of Austria (ally of the Kingdom of France before the Revolution since the wedding of Louis XVI with the famous archiduchess Marie-Antoinette known as l'Autrichienne). It is unique example of Neo-Gothic castle from second half of 19th century.




Inside, the hermine is everywhere. Hermine is the national symbol of Brittany, used by the dukes and kings of Brittany and many breton noble families, and on the Gwenn ha Du, flag of Brittany.


Coat of arms and motto of the House of Rohan

And finally, totally off-topic (though there was indeed a hôtel particulier in it) an other construction from the Rohan :

Rohan Bridge in Landerneau, Brittany
The last inhabited bridge of France, one of the few remaining in Europe. Built in 1336, rebuilt in 1510 by Jean II de Rohan.





Garden on the bridge, used as a terrasse for the restaurant on the bridge


The bridge street (rue du Pont)


The bridge included in the town

Voilà, sorry for the long post and the little off-topic but the Rohan deserve it

The Hôtels de la Païva, 19th century, Paris :

Esther Lachmann (7 May 1819 – 21 January 1884), better known as La Païva, was arguably the most successful of 19th-century French courtesans—ambitious and manipulative.




The Hôtel de la marquise de Païva was built in 1840, at 28 Place Saint-Georges and was inhabited by La Païva between 1851 and 1852 :



The Hôtel de la Païva (so kitsch ) was built by the courtesan between 1856 and 1866, at 25 Avenue des Champs-Élysées :

WONDERFUL updates!
This is one of my all-time favorite threads in SSC!

If anybody would like to visit a French city with many hôtels particuliers (other than Paris) open to the public, what city would that be? I think Toulouse should be a priority. What are others?

Yes, Toulouse is celebrated for its hôtels particuliers.
In Lyon, Dijon and Troyes there are many of small hôtels of the Renaissance period.
In Bourges, very beautiful medieval hôtels are accessible.
Bordeaux, Montpellier and Aix-en-Provence have many hôtels of the 17th-18th centuries.
Some hôtels particuliers are open to the public only during Heritage Days (usually take place during the 3rd week in September).

This staircase was created in a purely ostentatious intention to say the level of fortune which Païva had reached

On peut trouver dans quelque part les vieilles fotos des hôtels particuliers destruits que ont été conçus par Paul-Ernest Sanson?

  • Hôtel d'Arenberg, 20 rue de la Ville-l'Évêque, Paris 8e, de style Louis XVI, pour le prince et la princesse Auguste d'Arenberg, détruit dans les années 1960
  • Hôtel Lebaudy, 55-57 rue François-Ier, Paris 8e, 1900, pour Pierre Lebaudy, détruit en 1962
