Kabala (Kabbal) became an independent manorial estate in 1638. It has belonged to several different Baltic German families. The present house was erected around 1770 when Hans Georg von Uexküll was the landowner, in a late baroque style. Later on, the estate belonged to the von Lipharts and von Vietinghoffs, with the latter established their burial site and Neo-Gothic funeral chapel (in ruins) 3 km from the centre of the manor. Since 1923, a school has been located in the main building of the manor house.

The building still contains some very fine examples of original baroque and rococo interiors. These include two fine tiled stoves as well as stucco decorations, some of them possibly executed by master stucco craftsman Johann Michael Graff, who is famous for his extraordinary work at Rundāle Palace in Latvia. In the 19th century, further additions to the interior were made, such as the study with its richly carved and decorated wainscoting, neo-baroque stoves and stair balusters.

Kabala küla, Pargi tn 2 Türi vald, Järvamaa 58.691980, 25.629612 ‎58° 41' 31.13", 25° 37' 46.60" Строительство господского дома мызы Кабала началось во второй половине 18 века бароном Хансом фон Уекскюлем. В начале 19 века мыза Кабала перешла во владение к майорату, окружному маршалу Р. В. Фон Липхарту, который также являлся президентом Экономического Ливонского Сообщества и основоположником Ценного Художественного Союза Раади. Мыза Кабала также принадлежала фон Таубам и фон Виетингоффам. Представительный господский дом в стиле раннего классицизма построили к 1774 году. Господский дом был двухэтажным, в том месте, где находился центральный ризалит, была расположена надстройка, и, по этой причине, эта часть здания была трёхэтажной. На нижнем этаже находились сводчатые хозяйственные помещения, наверху были расположены представительские и жилые комнаты. Многие детали внутреннего убранства уникальны. Например, печи в стиле барокко, выложенные из разноцветного рельефного кафеля.Большой художественной ценностью обладает помещичий кабинет, который украшают декоративные гербы хозяинов мызы Кабала и деревянные панели в обрамлениях стиля необарокко. На мызе было много построек второстепенной роли, они расположены в группах по функциональности, полукругом вокруг парка. Главными являются дом управляющего, дом для прислуги и хлева. В конце 18 века построили парк в стиле барокко с широкой овальной передней площадкой. Позади господского дома находился большой сад в стиле барокко, который окружала липовая аллея. Парк в английском стиле, или парк со свободной планировкой, разбили в Кабала после того, как был достроен господский дом. Сейчас парк находится в хорошем состоянии. Парк запоминается ещё больше тем, что перед господским домом растёт 2 дуба. С 1923 года в господском доме существует школа, сейчас эта школа является основной школой Кабала, которая входит в Союз Мызовых школ Кабала. Богатый видами парк является местом проведения культурных мероприятий. С мызы Кабала родом серебряный призёр Олимпийских игр 1920 года в Антверпене, бегун марафона, Юри Лоссманн.

Luxembourg Palace

The famous Italian Medici family have given two queens to France: Catherine, the spouse of Henry II, and Marie, widow of Henry IV, who built the current Luxembourg palace. Maria di Medici had never been happy at the Louvre, still semi-medieval, where the fickle king, did not hesitate to receive his mistresses. The death of Henry IV, assassinated in 1610, left the way open for Marie's project. When she became regent, she was able to give special attention to the construction of an imposing modern residence that would be reminiscent of the Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens in Florence, where she grew up. The development of the 25-hectare park, which was to serve as a jewel-case for the palace, began immediately.

The architect, Salomon de Brosse, began the work in 1615. Only 16 years later was the palace was completed. Palace of Luxembourg affords a transition between the Renaissance and the Classical period.

In 1750, the Director of the King's Buildings installed in the wing the first public art-gallery in France, in which French and foreign canvases of the royal collections are shown. The Count of Provence and future Louis XVIII, who was living in Petit Luxembourg, had this gallery closed in 1780: leaving to emigrate, he fled from the palace in June 1791.

During the French Revolution the palace was first abandoned and then moved as a national prison. After that it was the seat of the French Directory, and in 1799, the home of the Sénat conservateur and the first residence of Napoleon Bonaparte, as First Consul of the French Republic. The old apartments of Maria di Medici were altered. The floor, which the 80 senators only occupied in 1804, was built in the middle of the present Conference Hall.

Beginning in 1835 the architect Alphonse de Gisors added a new garden wing parallel to the old corps de logis, replicating the look of the original 17th-century facade so precisely that it is difficult to distinguish at first glance the old from the new. The new senate chamber was located in what would have been the courtyard area in-between.

The new wing included a library (bibliothèque) with a cycle of paintings (1845–1847) by Eugène Delacroix. In the 1850s, at the request of Emperor Napoleon III, Gisors created the highly decorated Salle des Conférences, which influenced the nature of subsequent official interiors of the Second Empire, including those of the Palais Garnier.

During the German occupation of Paris (1940–1944), Hermann Göring took over the palace as the headquarters of the Luftwaffe in France, taking for himself a sumptuous suite of rooms to accommodate his visits to the French capital. Since 1958 the Luxembourg palace has been the seat of the French Senate of the Fifth Republic.
