The Richelieu-Louvois site is the historic birthplace of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Located in the heart of the capital, in the 17th century is was composed of several important and beautiful buildings, including the Palais Mazarin, the Hôtel Tubeuf and the Galerie Mansart. The library was installed on the site during the first half of the 18th century. Today it houses exceptional collections: manuscripts (from the remains of the most ancient writings to the manuscripts of modern writers), prints and photographs, stage music and art, letters and plans and finally the museum of coins, medals and antiques.
