This government edifice is a part of the Domaine royal palace very close to Louvre. It houses government offices and is not accessible to public. Just pass through and proceed to terrific gardens... more »
Great place with a superb institution. Congratulations to the Council of State!
To say that my father has passed his competitions to the Council of State taking advantage of the high view on the Royal Palace. That was a certain time because now I think it's unthinkable to see future candidates in this place again.
