Palais Du Luxembourg

Located at 15 rue de Vaugirard in the St. Germain des Pres quarter, the Palais du Luxembourg is easily the largest Mansion in the area. The palace was built for Louis XIII’s Mother and currently acts as the French Senate. Built by Italian Architect Metezeau, the mansion was constructed between the years 1615 and 1645. The large gardens surrounding the residence are its most intriguing feature, offering a quiet, green escape from the busy city for Parisians and tourists alike.
