Opened at the end of the eighteenth century, the Louvre is the country’s most renowned museum and one of the most visited in the world. Presently, it receives over 8 million visitors each year.
The Louvre Palace houses the largest museum in the world. The twelfth century fortress was extended and refurbished several times throughout the centuries. Before it opened as a museum, King Charles V and Philippe II chose this palace as their residence, decorating it with their ever growing art collections.
When the Royal Family moved to Versailles, the impressive building that covers a total area of 160,000 square meters was transformed into one of the most important museums in the world.
