Paris Military School, Paris

4.3
Paris Military School is a vast complex of buildings housing various military training facilities founded by Louis XV in 1750 to create an academic college for cadet officers from poor families. Not only can you appreciate the historical significance of this site, which produced countless great military leaders, but the statuesque, sprawling architecture is quite impressive as well.

As you explore this site, keep in mind that Napolean Bonaparte walked the same hallways, as he was accepted in 1784 and completed the two-year program in one year. To visit Paris Military School and other attractions in Paris, use our Paris trip planner.

  • It is possible to access the military school by presenting proof of identity to the security desk located in the # 1 spot Joffre. It is possible to register via some websites at conferences or seminars which are held regularly within the military school.

  • It's fascinating Paris. It truly is the gothic city. Would I go out my way to see this place? No not really. So why review it and why visit? Well here's why... If you are visiting the Eiffel Tower then it's easy to get to here. It's right beside the metro and there are some nice restaurants nearby so you are almost destined to come across it if you are like me and enjoy a wee stroll. The place is not overcrowded so you can really get a feel for the environment and appreciate the work behind the building. Nice to see. Great to appreciate. But nothing quite out of this world.
