Designed by Charles Garnier in the Beaux-Arts style between 1861-75, this remarkable estate used to serve as the first opera house in Paris. It gained its popularity thanks to the novel The Phantom of the Opera. Today, it's mainly used as a venue for ballet performances.
It consists of numerous parts with different functions and appearances - a theatre, rotundas, bibliothéque of the theatre, a gallery and, of course, a number of salons. The place also has a premium restaurant on the eastern side of the building.
