A brief history about Paris

The city was probably inhabited as early as 4200 BC. The Roman conquest in 52 BC completely transformed the city resulting in grandiose Roman architecture, such as theatres and palaces, as well the city was renamed Lutetia. Over the centuries, the city faced many wars and battles, including the Hundred Years War, the French Revolution, and had a central role in World War I. Despite this disruption, Paris has been very fortunate to survive with its iconic monumental historical and cultural landmarks such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre.
