Louvre Pyramid, Paris | France Top Attractions

Louvre Pyramid

Louvre Pyramid

The Louvre Museum has already been Paris’ historical landmark, but it became more iconic with the addition of the Louvre Pyramid, the large glass and the metal pyramid that serves as the main entrance to the Musee du Louvre. Designed by Chinese American architect I.M. Pei, the big pyramid is surrounded by three smaller pyramids at the Cour Napoleon.

With a height of 21.6 meters and a base surface area of 1,000 square meters, the Louvre Pyramid offers a stark contrast to the traditional façade of its surrounding buildings.

The structure was commissioned by President Francois Mitterand in 1984 to not only make the Louvre stand out but also to solve the problem that the museum had with the overwhelming number of tourists that visit it every day.

Although the addition of what is thought to be a modern structure in a historical complex raised the eyebrows of some critics, the Louvre Pyramid is now Paris’ most pictured and visited landmarks. So, if you’re in the City of Lights, make sure to drop by the famous Louvre Pyramid and visit the museum itself with the help of our team at La Vacanza. We can take the hassle out of booking a ticket to the Louvre with our tour packages.
