The Palais Bourbon, which is a former aristocratic house, has been the seat of a parliamentary assembly since 1798. On account of its colonnade and its pediment, this “Temple of Law” may appear intimidating but it is nowadays the house of all citizens. This is where M.P.s pass laws and monitor Government action.
Every year, more than 160,000 visitors pass through its doors to discover an incredibly wide-ranging cultural heritage as well as a state-of-the-art working environment.
I am pleased to welcome you here, to this great democratic institution which has its finger on the pulse of the country.
It is an institution whose constant wish is to legislate in accordance with the three basic principles of the motto of our French Republic: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
President/Speaker of the French National Assembly
