Rue du Calvaire in Montmartre Montmartre & Sacré Coeur Review

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 Montmartre & Sacré Coeur Review

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 - Paris

Cathedrale St-Croix de Paris

Cathedrale St-Croix de Paris Le Marais Review

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 - Paris

Paris from Centre Georges Pompidou

View from Centre Georges Pompidou Centre Georges Pompidou Review

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 - Paris

10th Arrondissement Town Hall

Arrondissements Town Halls

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

Musee de la Curiosite et de la Magie

Musee de la Curiosite et de la Magie Le Marais Review

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 - Paris

Sunday market in Place de la Bastille

Sunday market in Place de la Bastille Place de la Bastille Review

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

Place Dalida in Montmartre Montmartre & Sacré Coeur Review

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.

Eglise St-Germain-L'Auxerrois - Paris

Eglise St-Germain-L'Auxerrois

Eglise St-Germain-L'Auxerrois in Place du Louvre

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.
