Paris Off The Beaten Path: 1,968 reviews and 4,171 photos
One of the last regards (manholes) left standing in Paris today, this one was built between 1583 and 1603 to serve the underground aquaduct taking water from the heights of Belleville down to the city below. We are here only 250 metres from the highest point in Paris (40 rue du Telegraphe at 128 metres is slightly higher than Montmartre). Although there is not much water running here today, the aquaduct is broken and built over a couple of hundred metres away, it is still used as a drain-off for surplus water, it has been given the status of historic monument since 1899.
Closest metro is Place des Fetes or Telegraph.
