The architecture of the Palais Garnier is stunningly gorgeous both inside and out. The principal façade is completely covered with a number of decorative sculptures and intricate designs. The interior decor is also very luxurious. The four walls and colonnades are completely covered with Baroque statues, hanging lamps, and paintings. It is noteworthy for the 1910 novel "The Phantom of the Opera", which was subsequently made into films and a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Most performances that would have been held at the Palais Garnier have moved to the Opéra Bastille. The Palais is generally open to the public for tours, and nights featuring ballet or opera performances.

Paris Opera House, also known as the Opra Garnier, is named after the name of its architect Charles Garnier (1825 --- 1898). The Paris Opera House is the eclectic work of the eclecticism, where you can see the perfect combination of ancient Greek Roman colonnades, Baroque and many other architectural forms. It is one of the typical buildings of Napoleon III.
The predecessor of the Paris Opera, the Royal Opera House, was approved by King Louis XIV of France in 1667 and was destroyed in 1763 in a fire. So in 1860, Charle Garni stood out in 171 designs and was completed in 1875.
The famous musical "Phantom of the Opera" tells the story of the Paris Opera House; many paintings of Degas, famous for their love of painting ballerinas, are also related to the Opera House. The lounge of the
Paris Opera House is like a knock-out jewellery box. It is extremely luxurious and does not lose the mirror gallery of Versailles.
Personal prefers the stairs of the Opera House. When we went there, there were not many tourists. Standing here, we could see that the nobles of that year were slowly accompanied by the maids.
The Paris Opera House is named after the architect's own surname, formerly known as the Garnier Opera House. It is the place where the French upper class enjoys opera, no matter the interior decoration and the exterior architecture. Built in 1875, this is the world's most recognized architectural masterpiece of the Second Empire. The building is majestic and magnificent, with direct access to the King's Palace and the Louvre Museum through Opera Square and Opera Street. The Paris Opera has a world-famous ballet and an orchestra with a total of nearly 1,100 entertainers.
The second day of touring begins at the Palais Garnier, and due to the “Phantom of the Opera” the incredibly beautiful environment of the opera house filled me with awe.
The opera house was designed in 1861 by Charles Garnier, and is a work of art created at the pinnacle of eclecticism. The building combines a Greco-Roman stoa, the Baroque style, and several other architectural forms into a beautiful synthesis.
With a grand scale, exquisite refinement, and sumptuous appearance, it has been praised as being a theater where paintings, marble, and gold ornamentation beautify and magnify each other, providing great enjoyment to the people. It is one of the typical buildings of Napoleon III.
Only after strolling around the opera house did I find the entrance, which reminded me that on Sundays the opera house was only open from 2:30 - 4:30 in the evening, which really flustered us who arrived here at dawn. But, on simply seeing the imposing exterior we were filled with awe. Next time we visit, we will make it inside for a visit.
