Hôtel Biron

Recommended
Maréchal Biron bought this house in the 18C. It became a convent, with the aim of providing an education to girls from noble families. After the «loi sur la congrégation», part of the house became the lycée Victor Duruy. The remainder was put at the disposal of artists: Rilke lived here, then Auguste Rodin had the use of it until his death. Since then, it has been the Rodin Museum.
