Stunning building crammed with art and culture Feb 27, 2010
Dating from the nineteenth century, the Grand Palais is a really beautiful building to wander around. It was originally built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition and is a great combination of glass work, steel and stone. The pillars at the front entrance are like a Greek or Roman temple, whereas the heart of the building is crowned with this wonderful glass roof.

The palace today holds a wide variety of artistic and cultural events, has an area devoted to scientific knowledge and houses many exhibitions under its glass roof. I think that Chanel fashion shows are a periodic event here, but apart from that, the palace’s website is the best place to ascertain what the current features are.

If you are visiting the Petit Palais which is nearby, do not miss this place.
