Grand Palais is a beautiful historic site now mostly used as an exhibition hall. The impressive Nave is topped by the largest glass roof in Europe and it is claimed that more steel was used in its construction than that of the whole Eiffel Tower.
This monument( now a museum) was built, like the Eiffel Tower Only to last for the WORLD FAIR of 1904.It was later decided that, together with the Eiffel Tower, it should be kept.The museum itself is very interesting, but the architecture of this huge building mostly of glass and iron is , in itself, worth a visit
