Don't miss anything
La Monnaie or the Mint goes unnoticed when you walk the Seine. A bit hidden and less known, it was the main monetary workshop in France since 1775. It is considered an excellent example of prerevolutionary French neoclassical architecture.
If you look at the facade, you will see that it is one of the longest on the Seine; its appearance has been compared with the Italian palazzo tradition. The building, which housed administrative rooms, surrounds a large interior courtyard. It is still open to the public and includes a numismatic museum, located within what was once the main foundry.
