First stop in Paris for most craftsmanship mates is the Louver, the biggest exhibition hall in the western world. Initially the building was a fortification and in the event that you go to the cellar you can see the first dividers which date from 1190. In the sixteenth Century it was transformed into a Renaissance style royal residence which housed the imperial workmanship accumulation which comprised of twelve painted creations by such craftsmen as Leonardo di Vinci and Raphael that had been stolen from Italy.
The royal residence was extended and remodeled and was the home of King Louis XIV until he moved to Versailles and the spot fell into decay, brimming with bums, bars and bawdyhouses. (Really it must have been astonishing amid that period).the Louver at the end of the day turned into the home for a portion of the illustrious craft of Louis XIV and Marie Antionette in no time before their decapitations in 1793 when it held in excess of 2500 pieces.
Despite the fact that initially just rulers and sovereignty had the capacity see the craftsmanship, after the French Revolution the entryways were opened for everybody. It contains the absolute most well known pieces on the planet including the Venus di Milo, Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace and the best gathering of Greek, Roman, and Egyptian relics, and works of art from the medieval times to be found under one top.
