American Independence Road

At n° 5 of this street which used to be the ministries and services road, we find the old Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Navy. It was here, in 1762, that the alliance between France and the American "insurgents" took place. Today, it is the public library, created from the seizure, during the Revolution, of the royal libraries.
