Paris

Visit time : 4 days to 1 week.
It is of course “Paris, city of light”, but also “Paris, capital – and symbol— of France”, a city that expresses its country’s influence throughout the world. The city of Paris is a stunning architectural ensemble, built up over the centuries in spectacular unity. The area of the classified site that runs along the banks of the Seine reflects the evolution of the city and the importance of the river that runs through it. It offers visitors views of the most beautiful monuments in Paris, simultaneously tracing the city’s rich history. As you visit, you will move from the oldest districts, already occupied in ancient times, to the palaces of the kings, on to the major axes created by Baron Haussmann in the 19th century, and finally arrive at the 20th century additions and the Eiffel Tower. The history of Paris unfolds before your eyes in an enthralling journey through time. Whether cultural, historic, artistic, religious or architectural, the city’s rich heritage offers something for everyone.

World Heritage

Date of inscription: 1991

From the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower, from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand and Petit Palais, the evolution of Paris and its history can be seen from the River Seine. The Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris and the Sainte Chapelle are architectural masterpieces, while Haussmann's wide squares and boulevards influenced late 19th- and 20th-century city planning the world over.

The choice of the zone between Pont de Sully and Pont d'léna is based on the age-old distinction between Paris upstream and Paris downstream. Upstream, beyond the Arsenal, begins Paris, the port and river transport town; downstream is the royal and subsequently aristocratic Paris, which had only limited commercial activity. It is this latter section of the city that was selected for the World Heritage List. The powerful hand of the state is extremely visible here through its constructions and the legislation in effect. It can be seen how the site and the river were gradually brought under control with the articulation of the two islets (small islands), Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint-Louis, the creation of north-south thoroughfares, installations along the river course, construction of quays, and the channeling of the river. Similarly, although the successive walls of the city have disappeared (the enceintes of Philippe-Auguste, Charles V, and the Fermiers Généraux), their traces may be read in the difference in size and spacing of the buildings: closer together in the Marais and the Ile Saint-Louis, more open after the Louvre, beyond which are a greater number of major classic constructions laid along three perpendicular axes: Palais Bourbon-Concorde-Madeleine, Invalides-Grand and Petit Palais, Champ-de-Mars-École Militaire-Palais de Chaillot. The ensemble must be regarded as a geographical and historic entity. Today it constitutes a remarkable example of urban riverside architecture, where the strata of history are harmoniously superposed.

Criteria for selection

Criterion (i) : The banks of the Seine are studded with a succession of masterpieces, including, in particular, Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle, the Louvre, Palais de l'lnstitut, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Military Academy, La Monnaie (Mint), Grand Palais des Champs Elysées, Eiffel Tower and Palais de Chaillot. A number of them, such as Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle, were definitive references in the spread of Gothic construction, while the Place de la Concorde and the Invalides building complex exerted influence on the urban development of European capitals. The Marais and Ile Saint-Louis have coherent architectural ensembles, with highly significant examples of Parisian construction of the 17th and 18th centuries (Hôtel Lauzun and Hôtel Lambert on the Île St Louis, Quay Malaquais and Quay Voltaire).

Criterion (ii) : Haussmann's urbanism, which marks the western part of the city, inspired the construction of the great cities of the New World, in particular in Latin America. The Eiffel Tower and the Palais de Chaillot are living testimony of the great World’s Fairs, which were of such great cultural importance in the 19th and 20th centuries.

History

From the 3rd century BC onward, the Ile de la Cité was occupied by a Celtic village of fishermen, and marked the birth of the Parisii tribe, located along the Seine River. Following the invasion of Gaul by Julius Caesar in 52 BC, it became Lutetia. The development of the city, which at the time was fortified, began on the left bank of the Seine.

In the 5th century (AD) Clovis seized Paris and made it the capital of the Frank kingdom. The following centuries were more difficult for the city. Abandoned by its inhabitants and attacked several times, it only regained its role as capital in 861 under the Capetian dynasty, under which the city regained its economic, commercial and urban development, including along the right bank of the Seine.

The following century, Philip Augustus undertook the beautification of the city (building fountains, paving streets) and more importantly its protection, developing walls and building the fortress of the Louvre. Even though there are only very few traces of these ramparts that remain, a look at a map of Paris reveals the current urban structure surrounded by the large circular boulevards that took the place of the medieval ramparts. This is also what explains the very high urban density inside this perimeter.

From this point on, the Paris that we see today began to take shape. On the Ile de la Cité, Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle were created. The banks of the Seine became a major trading zone thanks to river access. Neighborhoods were structured: the Right Bank was occupied by tradesmen, the Left Bank by universities, making it an academic and intellectual hub. The Ile de la Cité became the seat of political and religious powers.

In the 13th century Paris was prosperous, and with its 80,000 inhabitants was the largest city in Europe at the time. Over the following centuries, epidemics, as well as the Hundred Years War, sank the city in political, economic and social instability. In the 14th century, Charles V erected new walls to protect the right bank and strengthen the fortresses of the Bastille and the Louvre from the onslaught of Englishmen. It was a waste of time; the city was occupied in 1420 and was released one hundred years later. It was not until the following century, under Francis I, that the city would return as the capital of a unified country.

He moved there in 1530 and during his reign the face of Paris was embellished. He transformed the medieval and austere Louvre into the beautiful Renaissance-style palace it is today, and he built the magnificent Hôtel de Ville (City Hall) ... The city was once again a great intellectual and cultural influence. However, though this was a prosperous period from a cultural standpoint, it remained extremely difficult from a religious point of view. The clashes between Catholics and Protestants led to the "Night of Saint Bartholomew" in 1572 when Catholics massacred the Protestant Huguenots.

Under the leadership of Henry IV the city continued its embellishment: completion of the Hôtel de Ville (City Hall) and the Pont Neuf, construction of monumental squares (Place Royale and Place Dauphine), and the extension of the Louvre and the Tuileries in particular. Gradually, aristocratic neighborhoods to the west of the city took shape. During the reign of Louis XIII, the city continued to expand, and new areas were created such as the Marais, and the Ile Saint-Louis was converted. The early 17th century was marked by the strengthening of the cultural and intellectual influence that Paris would continue to culminate in the next century under the "Enlightenment."

When Louis XIV came to power, he settled in the Saint-Germain district and then at Versailles. The city continued to grow and improve: the Louvre was once again extended, the Invalides complex was created, and gardens and new squares emerged (Place Vendome and Place des Victoires, Jardin des Tuileries). The architecture took on a decidedly classic and monumental style.

During the Enlightenment (18th century), more buildings took form, each one new and more majestic than the last (the Military Academy, the Pantheon, the Place and the Pont de la Concorde, Jardin du Palais Royal, etc). At the end of the century, the French Revolution ended in the victory of the Jacobins over the Girondins. Thus the influence of central government was strongly felt by the population, and it was the prefect who directly administered its authority. Under Napoleon the city did not have a mayor and it wasn’t until two centuries later, in 1977, that one would be elected at the head of the capital (Jacques Chirac).

Faced with a massive rural exodus, the population of the capital doubled in the first half of the 19th century. Popular unrest grew strongly until 1848 when a rebellion was severely repressed. Under Napoleon III, Paris developed the architectural configuration and urban structure that is visible today. The modernization of the city was entrusted to Georges Haussmann, who pierced the famous luxurious tree-lined avenues and stone façades, forever destroying the old medieval town. Reorganizing the cityscape, he created squares and gardens that aerated the city center. New monuments adorned the squares and avenues (Théâtre du Châtelet, Palais Garnier, etc).

The Royal Empire ended following the Franco-Prussian war of 1870. The insurrection of the Commune the following year ended in destruction by fire of many buildings (Hôtel de Ville and the Tuileries in particular). The Third Republic was then proclaimed. The city was then reunited and peaceful, and the end of the 19th century would be marked by the World’s Fair of 1889, which introduced the Eiffel Tower to the world for the first time, and the World’s Fair of 1900 which introduced the Grand and the Petit Palais.

The 20th century confirmed the artistic and cultural supremacy of Paris, attracting the biggest names in art and literature from all over Europe. The Palais de Chaillot and Tokyo were built, and many neighborhoods were restored. The different presidents of the Fifth French Republic made their mark, in their own way, on the monuments and buildings of the city. Georges Pompidou left the cultural center that bears his name; Valery Giscard d'Estaing, the Musée d'Orsay and the Science Museum; François Mitterrand the Louvre Pyramid, the Bastille Opera House, the National Library and the new arch at la Défense.
