At the Hotel de Sens, a medieval castle located near the Île de la Cité, a cannonball that was fired during the “Three Glorious Days” of the 1830 Revolution remains embedded in the façade. An inscription on the building (visible to the upper right of the turret’s balcony) records the date of the event, “28 Juillet 1830.” The English artist Shotter Boys recorded it incorrectly in his print as “29 Juillet 1830.”
