1 review of Hôtel de Ville in English
Superb building that stands on its place and which airs castle city.
It must be said that City Hall Levallois-Perret, built at the end of Nineteenth century as much, has a style unique to this era: high roofing slates, a wide porch, topped by a lantern which dominates the clock. We find this style easily recognizable in Paris, Vannes, Neuilly, and so on.
But the time the building was also the time of emancipation and the struggle to establish itself facing the powerful neighbours Clichy and Neuilly. So Mayor of the time, Trébois commanded a majestic City Hall, size much more important. As for his lavish ornaments, there is a style Louis XIV very present.
Within you will see that everything is monumental: a grand double staircase revolution that leads to the Salons d’Honneur, long forty-four meters, decorated
sumptuous frescoes painted at different times and lit by twelve beautiful chandeliers, a room richly decorated Council and having the particularity to own forums in height to accommodate a wide
The hall marriages added belatedly by the current mayor (elected in 1983) is magnificent, in the style “candy box”!
A visit to the castle before or after the castles of the Loire!
