Between the 16th and 17th centuries in Paris, the Marais was the district favoured by nobility who had superb mansions built, one of which was the Palais Soubise, noteworthy for its façade and magnificent main courtyard. Turned into State property at the time of the Revolution, the Hôtel de Soubise became the Archive Museum in 1867 and the Hôtel de Rohan was first of all allocated to the Imprimerie Nationale. The Museum exhibits more than 1,800 original documents originating from the archives. The Hôtel de Rohan was eventually allocated to the National Archives in 1927. This makes it possible to preserve the minutes of the Paris notary. In order to discover these fascinating documents, remember to book your parking place in advance!
