4 of 16
The Louvre was originally built as a fortress in 1190, but was reconstructed in the 16th century to serve as a royal palace, called Louvre Palace. It continued to be expanded over the years. In 1793, Louis XIV moved the royal residence to Versailles, and the Louvre Palace became an art museum, exhibiting the royal collection and artifacts. The Louvre houses one of the most impressive art collections in history.
