Rue du Calvaire
A real nightmare going home everyday, isn't it?
They couldn't find another name more appropriate for this street than "Rue du Calvaire".
At least the locals don't need to go to gym anymore...
Just wandering in Montmartre was a real delight because we had the chance to discover funny / interesting places like this one.
Tristan Tzara’s house in Montmartre
As I mentioned before, we didn't plan anything when we've visited Montmartre, that's why our pleasure to discover different places, monuments, historic buildings was bigger.
Wandering in Montmartre we found on a street Tristan Tzara's house made by the architect Adolf Loos.
Cathedrale St-Croix de Paris
Seeing the name in the guide, I thought initially that I'll see a huge church in the heart of Le Marais.
Cathedrale Ste-Croix-de-Paris is actually a small church built in 1624 as a Capuchin monastery chapel.
The church is now the church of the Armenian comunity.
Address: Rue Charlot
Paris from Centre Georges Pompidou
One of the things that I liked the most in Paris is the fact that you can admire wonderful views of the town from different high points (Tour Eiffel, Tour Montparnasse, Notre-Dame's towers or Sacre-Coeur).
Here is one from the 5th floor of Centre Georges Pompidou, from the entrance to the exhibition.
10th Arrondissement Town Hall
What is sure in Paris is that the town is full of wonderful historic buildings.
In every corner you can find another new beautiful building, sometimes not even mentioned in a guide.
Some of these buildings are the arrondissements town halls, because not only Hotel de Ville, Paris town hall is breathtaking, but also the 10th arrondissement town hall (former Chateau d'Eau) or 1st arrondissement town hall are as beautiful as Hotel de Ville.
Musee de la Curiosite et de la Magie
Paris is a town full of museums.
In Le Marais we have discovered on a street Musee de la Curiosite et de la Magie. The entrance is quite small and hidden and it can be easily missed.
Unfortunately it was our last morning in Paris and it was closed in the morning, but I've heart that the museum displays an interesting collection of objects related to this art.
11 rue Saint-Paul
Sunday market in Place de la Bastille
I have found this small and colorful Sunday market in Place de la Concorde and I really enjoyed the walk through the stands full of fresh fruits, vegetables or sea fruits.
It was our last day in Paris and we couldn’t buy anything but I think that for the ones living in the neighborhood it is a good place for shopping.
Place Dalida in Montmartre
In 1997, the angle of the rues Girardon and Abreuvoir in the Butte Montmartre in Paris was inaugurated as "Place Dalida" in memory of this great singer.
In a corner a life-size bust of Dalida was erected.
This beautiful church, named after St Germanus, Bishop of Auxerre in the 5C, is located in Place du Louvre and is dominated by an interesting combination of architectural styles: Romanesque (belfry), Gothic (chancel), Flamboyant (porch and nave) and Renaissance (doorway).
St-Germain became parish church in the 14C when the Valois moved to Louvre.
Important painters (Coypel, Chardin), architects (Le Vau, Soufflot), sculptors (Coysevox) and poets (Jodelle, Malherbe) are buried in this church.
