The Quai becomes the east of the Palais Bourbon, and the Quai Branly west of the Pont de l'Alma.The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is located on the Quai d'Orsay, and thus the ministry is often called the Quai d'Orsay by metonymy.The Quai (rue du Bac) has historically played an important role in French art as a location to which many artists came to paint along the banks of the river Seine.The building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was developed between 1844 and 1855 by Jacques Lacornée. The statues of the facade were created by the sculptor (1870).

  • Paris must be lived in full walking, listening to people speaking, smelling the scents, watching the colors that are always changing but even more by watching people's faces, the wonder that transpires from their eyes. Quai d'Orsay is one of many magical places of Paris
