Île-de-France is one of the 18 regions of France, and includes the city of Paris. It covers 12 012 square kilometers (4 638 square miles), and has its own regional council and president. Created as the "District of the Paris Region" in 1961, it was renamed after the historic province of Île-de-France in 1976 when its administrative status was aligned with the other French administrative regions created in 1972. Residents are sometimes referred to as "Franciliens", an administrative word created in the 1980s. The city's landmarks include the Louvre, home to da Vinci’s "Mona Lisa," the iconic Eiffel Tower and Gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral.
