The Hôtel de Ville (City Hall) in Paris features an underground tunnel built by soldiers in 1807 to evacuate the city government, protecting them from invasion during the Franco-Prussian War. The French Renaissance-style building now houses the city’s first openly gay mayor, Bertrand Delanoë. Click to take a digital tour of the Hôtel de Ville.
