The Château de Fontainebleau was built around a series of courtyards. The Château de Fontainebleau was built in a famous forest for hunting. The Château Forest has a lot of endangered animals. There were many rulers who lived in the Château de Fontainebleau. For example Capetiens, Valois, Bourbons, Bonaparte, and Orleans all stayed there. Napoleon mostly loved it because he named it “house of the centuries” and he refurnished the Château de Fontainebleau in 1804.

http://media.desura.com/images/gr oups/1/4/3640/arc-­‐de-­‐triomphe.jpg

     

Jean  Franços  Thérès  Chalgrin   built  it  in  1806  CE.  Napoléon  issued   the  building  after  his  victory  in   Austerlitz,  with  his  generals  names   engraved  in  the  Arc.  Napoléon  died   before  it  was  finished  in  1836  CE.   It  has  a  massive  size   of  164  feet  tall,  148  feet   wide,  and  72  feet  deep.  

The  Arc  de  Triomphe   is  located  in  Champs-­‐ Élysées,  Paris.    

It is  special  to  France  for  many   reasons:   1. It’s  pretty  to  look  at.   2. Its  massive  size.   3. Its  location.   4. It  represents  soldiers  who   fought  in  the  Napoleonic  and   revolutionary  war.

France didn’t  always  own  the   Arc.  In  World  War  II  when  Germany   attacked  France,  Germany  took   possession  of  France  in  1940  until   the  allies  won  it  back  in  1944.

12/18/13 Sacre Coeur Michael DeMercurio

The Sacre Coeur was a monumental cathedral that is higher than the tip of the Eiffel Tower due to the fact that is on top of a big hill. It was started in 1876 in the beautiful town of Montmartre, from the 18th arrondissement. A man named Paul Abadie who had made two other cathedrals created the Project of building it.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/99/Paris_Sacre�Coeur.JPG

The Sacre Coeur is made out of very white bricks that can be attributed from the blocks from the Chateau Landon. This is the top view from the Sacre Coeur and this person in technically standing higher than the Eiffel Tower and he can thank Lucein Magne who took Charge after Abadie had died in 1884. This picture to the right is the inside of the Sacre Coeur. It was comfirmed as the Basilica Project which was finished in 1914 when people could be allowed in. Inside is very beautiful and has icons of Mary and Christ


Jardin Du Luxembourg By Hannah Feinberg

http://fineartamerica.com/featured/jardin-­‐du-­‐luxembourg-­‐paris-­‐pierre-­‐leclerc.html    

v The Jardin du Luxembourg is 65 acres and is known for its fountains, sculptures, ponds, flowerbeds and more.

v The inspiration for the park was from the Boboli garden at the Pitti Palace. v Architect Salomon de Brosse also built it. v The duke of Luxembourg originally owned it. v There is a bronze replica of the state of Liberty, which was built in 1861. v The original park was built at 6e Arrondissement, 75006 Paris, France in 1625. However, it didn’t reach its current look until 1790. v The palace there was used as a prison in 1794 during the French Revolution. v The park is the garden of the French Senate, which is housed in the Palais du Luxembourg.


Centre Georges Pompidou It was built from 1971-1977. It took about 6 years and completed on January 31st of 1977. GTMtm builders literally made it but there were 3 architects involved. Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers, and Gianfranco Franchini. You can find it at 19 Rue Beaubourg Paris, France. In past years some very well known and famous artists have had their art featured there. The Building it’s self is like a modern art piece, which fits because the Centre Georges Pompidou is a modern art museum. It really stands out in the sometimes “gray city” because it is colorful. It’s also 7 stories high. Some very interesting pieces are housed there. So why not consider giving this place a visit, because it’s definitely worth it!

Moulin Rouge   was   built   in   October   of  1889.  Joseph  Oller  built  it  and  it  is   in   Paris,   France.   The   Moulin   Rouge   was   a   dance   hall   and   it   is   the   birth   of  the  can-­‐can  dance.  

The can-­‐can   dance   is   a   fast   paced   dance   that   is   preformed   in   the   Moulin  Rouge.  The  dance  had  high   kicks,  cartwheels,  and  splits.  Later,   this   dance   was   thought   to   be   shocking   because   when   women   were   preforming   it   they   wouldn’t   were  anything  under  their  dresses.  

The Moulin  Rouge  was  burnt   down.  Everybody  was  devastated   because  everybody  loved  the   dance  hall.  All  people  that  were   working  to  rebuild  it  had  to  work   fast.  When  the  Moulin  Rouge   was  complete  it  was  bigger  and   better  than  before.
