One of the most iconic sites in Paris, the Palais Garnier was built between 1861 and 1875 for the Paris Opéra, the primary opera company in France, founded in 1669 by Louis XIV. Perhaps the most opulent symbol of the Second Empire, the theater was commissioned by Napoleon III as part of the renovation of the capital carried out under his command by Baron Haussmann, and was designed by the architect Charles Garnier.
