[edit] Change

Some archeologists found the first signs of Paris habitation on the side of the Seine (Nowadays Bercy), strategic place for maritime transport. From there, the narration brings us to the evolution of the city into a modest roman city: Lutèce. Urbanistic ambitions ended up in the expansion of the left bank, the creation of the Cardo (Nowadays rue Saint-Jacques) and the construction of the forum and the thermal baths. The decline of the Roman Empire allowed Christians to take control of the city. The Saint-Geneviève Church and the Saint-Apôtres monastery are examples of the city’s revival.

Philippe Auguste (heir of Louis XII), one of the first sovereigns who was preoccupied by the city’s urbanization, he’s the one who cobbled some of the main streets. This period is also known to be a great architectural revolution, several monuments were built and became strong symbols of Paris. Philippe Auguste made the Louvre his first residence. In 1163, the first stones of Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral were set, meanwhile the king Saint-Louis construct the Sainte-Chapelle in order to store Christ’s relics bought in Constantinople.

The Parisians changed the course of history when their uprising led to the storming of the Bastille prison and burning of the city hall in 1789. Some of the great symbols of oppression felt down.
