The Hôtel de Ville – the old townhall of Paris, France is a really fantastic building. It was built from 1874 on and contains 146 statues on its façade. The square in front was used as an harbour area and for executions during the French Revolution.
The building is part of history: in 1870 the French Third Republic was proclaimed here. During the times of the Commune de Paris the building burned down.
