Let us guide you through a fascinating walk, and discover the hidden and historic treasures of this monument, but also those of the surrounding galleries.
Few places bear witness to such a concentration of historical events: between seizures of power, revolts, parties and ephemeral pleasures, the palace sometimes welcomes the aristocracy, sometimes the people. People like Richelieu, Corneille, Louis XIV, Molière, Lully, Diderot, Desmoulins, Charlotte Corday, Colette and Cocteau have lived there or have frequented its galleries, theaters and cafes.
