Visit Baron palace which is a massive mansion built by the Baron Édouard Empain, a Belgian entrepreneur and architect who also built the Paris Métro. Its distinctive architecture and placement have led to the proliferation of rumors over the years
In its prime, the palace had luxurious gardens, gilded doors, and Belgian mirrors designed by Georges-Louis Claude. Built between 1907 and 1911, the mansion is covered with detailed animals and figures inspired by Orissa in India and Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Now long-abandoned, the palace is said to be connected to underground tunnels which lead to the nearby Catholic basilica where the Baron is buried. The Baron’s life was somewhat tragic and long after his death, he remains a mysterious figure in city-lore.
