"IIIrd - The cloisters of Le Marais" Le Marais Tip by Maillekeukeul

Le Marais, Paris: 13 reviews and 15 photos


Favorite thing: Don't be shy !!! When strolling around in Le Marais, you have to be courageous and pass the open doors (or portals) to discover the hidden and probably most beautiful parts of Le Marais : the cloisters set inside the old buildings. Well, if you're too shy to do so, sometimes, some open squares are former cloisters and you can enjoy their design.

Fondest memory: During a "Music Feast" (in the whole country, on the 21st of June, everybody is allowed to play music in the streets... such a great idea !!!), a friend and I entered a party in Le Marais to which we were not invited. They just opened the door when we were fronting it for some other reasons, so, we decided to behave like guests !!! The house was unbelievable, but everybody was dancing in this huuuuuge cloister of it.... A great memory...

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
