Cour Napoléon at night, Louvre, Paris

8 glos(y)(ów)
The Louvre has dominated central Paris since the late 12th century. Built on the city's western edge, the original structure was gradually engulfed as the city grew. The dark fortress of the early days was transformed into the modernized dwelling of François I and, later, the sumptuous palace of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Here we explore the history of this extraordinary edifice and of the museum that has occupied it since 1793.

The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Tuesday and the following holidays: January 1st, May 1st, November 11 and December 25, 2008. Admission to the Louvre is free on the first Sunday of every month.

Métro : Palais-Royal-Musée du Louvre station.
