The great hours in the history of the Marais
From the Hôtel de Ville, I invite you to stroll through the charming medieval streets lined with the oldest houses in Paris.
Passing through the Mansion of Beauvais where Mozart resided, to the Mansion of Sens where Queen Margot stayed, to the former walls of Philippe Auguste from the 12th century, we will sneak through the picturesque village of Saint Paul dear to the mad king Charles VI and a certain Rabelais.
The Saint Louis church will open its doors to us to relive the heyday of Bossuet, Bourdaloue and the royal court.
We will remember the memory of King Henry II who tragically lost his life in what would later become the famous Place des Vosges, the first royal square in Paris.
A word from your guide:
The Marais is one of the jewels of Paris, a fascinating district for its authenticity, its history, the diversity of its unsuspected and hidden heritage.
It is also a real living theater of our society which continues to shape our memory and our imagination.
