The public Chamber of the academicians is precisely located under the dome (cupola) we see from the outside. This room is superb. The French Academy was founded in 1634 under the reign of Louis XIII by cardinal Richelieu. His goal: standardize and perfect the French language. It consists of forty members elected by their peers. Integrated into the Institute of France during its inception on October 25, 1795, she is the first of its five academies. Having studied languages, the activity of this venerable institution particularly attracted me. The statue of Napoleon I in opposite white marble is also impressive. But the real gem of the Academy is probably the Mazarine library. Just cross the courtyard to find calm and serenity. It is the oldest Library of Paris. By entering, we have the impression of being in another century. You will find among other treasures a facsimile of the bible to 42 lines of Johann Gutenberg of Mainz. It's an unforgettable visit that I recommend you do during the next weekend of the heritage days, unless you are invited before by an 'immortal'...show original

Mais um belo monumento da arquitetura francesa, além de sua função social, vale a pena apreciá-lo enquanto se passeia pelas margens do Sena.Another beautiful monument of French architecture, in addition to its social function, it is worth enjoying it while strolling along the banks of the Seine.show original
Very disappointed. Tried to go there to see the Da Vinci Paris Papers... This place has 2 libraries. One accessible to the public and one accessible only to academics. The Da Vinci papers are in the non accessible one. I couldn't get in to view them without some sort of academic invitation... No exceptions.
