"It reminded me of the Berlin wall" Grafitti Tip by sourbugger

Grafitti, Paris: 4 reviews and 5 photos


The area above the underpass at the Pont de l'alma has become an important place for some visitors to Paris. They leave their grafittied messages to Diana, princess of Wales and Dodi who died in the underpass. What actually happened that night is still the subject of some rather wild conspiracy theories.

Some messages express simple regret, whilst others refer to various shady security organisations who may have engineered something.

The area is scrubbed from time to time, but the area was covered in messages when I visited in November 2005. There were also a few flowers of the nearby 'golden flame' that has become another unofficial memorial to the death.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
