The Grand Chancery of the Legion of Honor is at the helm of a noteworthy architectural ensemble, comprising in particular Hôtel de Salm and the ancient royal abbey of Saint-Denis. Listed as historical monuments, these two buildings require constant renovation and modernization. The Institution needs your financial support to conserve and enhance this exceptional heritage.

Hôtel de Salm, Palace of the Legion of Honor

Since 2011, the facades of Hôtel de Salm, its reception halls and vestibule as well as the Order’s Council Room and the gardens that look out onto the Seine river have been restored.

The next priority awaiting funding is the restoration of the court of honor, where the triumphal arc, the colonnade and the sculptures form a spectacular grouping of antique-style architecture.

Maison d’éducation de Saint-Denis, former royal abbey

The restoration work of the Intendance (stewardship) wing was completed in the spring of 2014.

Subject to securing sufficient funding, the next restoration projects should focus on bringing out the quality of a number of 18thcentury masterpieces, the facade facing the basilica and the stairs with winding quarter.

Whether you are a Legion of Honor recipient or a defender of our architectural heritage, you can contribute to the restoration work. In becoming a sponsor, you are entitled to a reduction in your income tax under French tax law.
