The Palais Rohan in Strasbourg, Bas-Rhin, France is the former residence of the prince-bishops and cardinals of the House of Rohan and a major architectural, historic and cultural landmark of the city. Built in the 1730s next to Strasbourg Cathedral it is considered a masterwork of French Baroque architecture and has hosted a number of illustrious guests since its inauguration in 1742.Reflecting the history of Strasbourg and of France, the Palais was owned alternatively by the nobility, the municipality, the monarchy, the State and the university. Its very architectural and iconographic conception, notably through the statues and reliefs of the façades, was meant to express the return of Catholicism to a city that had been dominated by Protestantism for the previous two centuries.Since the end of the 19th century, the Palais is home to three of Strasbourg's most important museums: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts and the Museum of Fine Arts . The municipal art gallery, Galerie Robert Heitz, in a lateral wing of the palace, is used for temporary exhibitions.
