The Ermitage Pavilion, located in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, is the unique vestige of the Bagnolet Estate, which was the former property of Duchess of Orleans. It was composed of a park, a castle and three pavilions and was purchased in 1719. The Estate was bought in the 19th Century by welfare services. In the 20th Century, it was part of Debrousse Hospice until 1972, and then became the property of Paris social services, which is the current owner. The Ermitage Pavilion was restored in 1987 and has been open to the public since 2005. Three mural paintings representing three hermits (Saint Venert and Saint Azelle among them) remain from the original decoration. The north drawing room decoration is neoclassical and has not changed since 1761. Temporary exhibitions are organized in this area.
