L’Hôtel de Salm
Palais de la Légion d’honneur
Preface by the Grand Chancellor, Army General Jean-Pierre Kelche
The Hotel de Salm was built under Louis XVI in a new neighborhood at the forefront of fashion, the Faubourg Saint-Germain. Designed by architect Rousseau for the Prince of Salm, this palace with columns in the spirit of Palladio, sold under the Empire to become the seat of the Legion of Honor, burned under the Commune, then transformed to preserve the collections of the Legion of Honor Museum, is the residence of the Grand Chancellor of the Order. This book opens its doors to you for a private and complete guided tour by Jean-Pierre Samoyault for interior decoration and Jacques Foucart for paintings. Anne de Chefdebien, curator, invites you to revisit the completely renovated museum.
