Métro SNCF, Paris: 16 reviews and 26 photos

  Organic growth and April sky

This is something that you cannot avoid seeing - but I think that you should hold your steps for a few minutes and really LOOK.

Many of the old Art Noveau/Jugend barriers and lamp posts still exist. The picture shows the one at Montmartre station Anvers.

This is as much Art Noveau as you can get! The flower stems, the red buds (lamps), the organic frame holding the Metro sign. It is 100 percent. Look at the barrier that surrounds the stairs as well - also total Art Noveau. And very good craftsmanship at that!
