Rue du Louvre, Paris, 75001, France

The geographical center of Paris, the First Arrondissement is home to many of the city’s most renowned landmarks, including the Musée du Louvre; the 1629 Palais Royal (Royal Palace); and the Jardin des Tuileries (Tuileries Garden), the city’s oldest public park. The district also contains the Forum des Halles, a huge subterranean shopping center built where Les Halles, a 12th-century marketplace, once stood. On the western tip of the Île de la Cité is La Ste.-Chapelle, a 13th-century Gothic cathedral known for its stained glass, and La Conciergerie, a former palace and prison where Marie Antoinette awaited execution in 1793.
