Garnier opera

Great monument representing perhaps the great symbol of the transformation of Paris made by Haussmann and Napoleon III in the second half of the s. XIX The light city was being rebuilt to be the most beautiful city in the world and could not not have an opera at the level of other European capitals.

It is called Palais Garnier in honor of the architect Charles Garnier and has become "probably the most famous opera theater in the world, symbol of Paris as the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, the Louvre or the Basilica of the Sacred Heart." This is due in large part to the location of Gaston Leroux's novel "The Phantom of the Opera" and its subsequent films and adaptations.

On the outside, letters "N" and "E" are observed, representing Napoleon III and his wife Eugènie. Visiting it on the inside is even more spectacular. It has a large staircase and in the concert hall do not forget to look at the ceiling to see the sky painted by Marc Chagall, a work that illuminates and gives a contemporary touch to the room.
