- Built in the same period as the Pont Alexandre-III, the architecture of the Grand Palais is stunning. The ionic columns and the exuberant decoration of the façade invite visitors to discover an interior as splendid as its exterior. A large glass roof supported by a metallic structure lends this area a luminous delicacy enhanced by the art nouveau style. Erected "par la République à la gloire de l'art français" (by the Republic for the glory of French Art), the Grand Palais holds temporary exhibitions, which are always very popular.
