Colonnade du Louvre Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
In 1662, the Louvre Palace's outside façade on the Paris side, was still not as Louis XIV desired. The king preferred Bernin's project to those of three French architects: Perrault, Le Vau and d'Orbay. Overlooking the church of Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois, this majestic façade was finally finished in 1811 (and whose true height was discovered in 1967, when the moats were dug out), illustrates the classical layout of the Grand Siècle.
