Geocache Description:


C'est en 1594 que Henri IV décide d'unir le palais du Louvre aux Tuileries, ce qui donna ce que l'on connaît aujourd'hui, mais ce n'est que sous la Révolution (vers 1793) qu'il devint un musée. C'est aujourd'hui le plus grand musée de Paris (60 600 m² consacrés à l'exposition de 460 000 œuvres). Le Louvre est célèbre pour la richesse et la beauté de ses collections, constituées progressivement depuis François 1er au 16e siècle, et pour le sourire de la Joconde :-)
La cache que vous cherchez est dans un endroit à l'écart, derrière un élément étonnant et ignoré de l'architecture du bâtiment, probablement ajouté au 19e siècle.

[En]It's in 1594 that Henri IV decided to join the Louvre to the Tuileries, which gave what it is today, but it is only during the Revolution (in 1793) that it really became a museum. Today it is the largest museum in Paris (60,600 m² dedicated to the exhibition of 460 000 works of all periods). The Louvre is famous for the richness and beauty of its collections, made gradually since François 1st from the 16th century, and for the smile of the Mona Lisa :-)
The cache you seek is in a secluded area behind a surprising element and ignored of the architecture of the building, probably added in the 19th century.
