With this medallion Paris City Hall pays tribute to the City Hall building, whose history dates back to the 14th century. Eternally captured by the photo by Robert Doisneau, le Baiser de l’Hôtel de ville (the Kiss at City Hall), this key building for the French Republic has been a unique witness and played a major role in all the eventful episodes that have fashioned the history of France. The headquarters of Paris City Council and its executive, the City Hall is now a place of work and leisure where Parisians come to debate the capital’s future and Heads of State are received on official visits.
