Boasting of being one of the world’s largest astronomical centers, Paris Observatory is a historic building constructed between 1667 and 1671. Serving as PSL University’s research institution, the observatory is home to a rich library that houses archives, instruments and other significant works of famous astronomers. Built with the order of Louis XIV, the observatory was designed by the French architect Claude Perrault in the classical style. A must-visit for science enthusiasts, Paris Observatory is both educational and recreational.
