The Grand Palais (“Grand Palace”) is a large glass exhibition hall that was built for the Paris Exhibition of 1900. From the Pont Alexandre III you can clearly see the impressive glass roof of the Grand Palais.
The Grand Palais was build at the same time as the Pont Alexandre III, in 1900 and is an impressive example of early 20th century Art Nouveau.
A little known fact is that the Grand Palais has a major police station in the basement which helps protect the exhibits on show.
