The street vendors sell paintings (of Paris, animals etc), prints, 2nd hand books (mostly French and English), souvenirs and more.

With the Cathedral of Notre Dame as a backdrop it is a beautiful way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

It is an ideal place to get presents for your family and friends.

Unlike Montmartre, there were no artists painting when I was there in August 2005. Apparently the painting I bought was painted by an Art student as part of their course.

Address: Opposite (across the Seine,) from Notre Dame
