  The lion of denfert rochereau
by BenFromParis

Not a very famous district district for tourists but a nice place to live for parisians.

Metro and RER : denfert rochereau

The entrance of the catacombes is here (the parisian necropol)

On the picture, the lion of denfert Rochereau.
Surely my favorite sculpture in Paris.
Created by Bartholdi in 1880. It's the 2/3 replic of the original statue in Belfort.
