"Grenouille's Pont-au-Change" Pont-au-Change Tip by Jefie
Pont-au-Change, Paris: 1 reviews and 1 photos
If you have read Patrick Suskind's novel "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer", you might want to see the Pont-au-Change, the bridge where Giuseppe Baldini's perfume shop was located. The Pont-au-Change still exists, although the one that was described in the story, with houses and shops on both sides, has been replaced by a new bridge. It is the second bridge on the island, if you start counting at Le Pont-Neuf, and it leads into the area that is now known as Beaubourg - Les Halles, but which used to be where the pestilent and evil-smelling "Cimetiere des Innocents" was located (where the novel's hero, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, begins and ends his life).
Address: Quai de la Mégisserie, 75001 Paris, France
Directions: Pont-au-Change, between Ile de la Cité and the Beaubourg - Les Halles area.
