This arcade, which used to house 120 luxury boutiques, was one of the most popular spots in Paris before 1830 and surrounds the central gardens of Palais Royal which is open to the public. Imitation of the elegant and highly favoured Galeries du Bois du Palais Royal, saw the construction of galleries such as Galerie Feydeau (1791 – no longer exists), Passage Caire (1798 – present day) and Passage Panoramas (1799 – present day).
