Discover the Place de Grève, at the XVIIth century

The Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, has inaugurated on the 2nd of April 2017 a new Timescope terminal on the Seine river bank.

Give life to the historical heritage and enrich the touristic experience

That’s the mission that gave herself the Mayor of Paris by putting a Timescope terminal in the new « Rives de Seine » park, near the Town Hall.

Inaugurated by Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, the touristic experience in virtual reality is very well-received by both the Parisians and the tourists, with more than 300 uses per day.

A reconstitution of Paris in 1628

From historical archives (engravings, cadastres…), Timescope has made a reconstitution of the Place de Grève as it was in 1628. The Town Hall had just been inaugurated. Immersed in a everyday life scene, modeled realistically, we discover the bridges that had houses on them at that time and the barges full of goods.
