The Hôtel Amelot de Gournay was built in 1712. It is partly occupied by the Maison de l’Amérique Latine and partly by the Paraguayan Embassy. It is adjacent to the Hôtel de Varengeville, a beautiful architectural ensemble on the corner of Rue Saint-Dominique and Boulevard Saint-Germain. Well preserved, the Hôtel de Gournay has maintained its original look. The most remarkable parts are: the entrance gate, the oval courtyard and its pilastered facade, the garden, the Ambassadors room. The hotel is listed as a historical monument. This architectural wonder, which is very modern considering it was built at the beginning of the 18th century, cannot be visited.
