No wonder France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Thanks for this thread. 17th century hôtels are one of my favourite forms of architecture, and the Hôtel de Sully is one of my all-time favourite buildings.

I've got a load of pics from here, I need to sort them and upload them. Inside there was a contemporary art exhibition that would be interesting to show.

There's something so special about these places. In large cities, they tend to be "secondary" sights... while most visitors stick to the large museums and cathedrals, these smaller jewels guard their treasures discreetly. No matter how famous they are, you always feel like you've made a discovery!

The facade was partly redesigned in the 18th century except the ground floor (of the 16th century with the courtyard).

^interesting, a year or so ago I entered it without knowing it was a special building. The courtyard just looked very attractive and inviting from the outside. A lot of the building was behind scaffolding, as it was restored. The finished parts looked really well.

The positioning of the 28 hôtels particuliers give the rectangular Place Vendôme the aspect of an octagon.



No. 23 Hôtel de Boullongne :

Magnificent thread. The elegance and splendor of French architecture are balanced by taste and proportion. This balance fascinates me. I never get tired of looking at these buildings.
