Stuart Smith / 8,202 items
The building contains the official apartments of the mayor of Paris.
Three city halls have stood on the site of the present building, each grander than its predecessor. The first was the House of Pillars (Maison aux Piliers), used by the municipality from 1357 to 1533. The present-day Hôtel de Ville (1874–82) replaced the Renaissance structure that was in use from the 16th century until 1871, when it was burned by the insurrectionary Communards.
