Founded by Louis XIV in 1669, the Palais Garnier is housing the Paris Opera. It was designed by Charles Garnier and it still stands out as the ultimate symbol of the 19th century baroque style.
The construction of the opera started in 1862, and was completed at 1875; this was due an underground lake that was discovered while the excavations took place.
Nowadays, the majestic Opéra Garnier is mainly used for ballet performances. The Palais Garnier is one of the largest theatres worldwide along with being one of the most beautiful and worth visiting.
Its exterior look is outstanding with a facade decorated with rose marble columns, sculpture groups and two large gilded statues.
Inside the building is even more impressive.
