Description


You want to discover the cultural treasures of the most historic and best-preserved neighbourhood of Paris? This is the book for you Le Marais. The Paris of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance isn't lost. It exists in a neighbourhood that escaped the city's transformation in the 19th century. This book, based on a large number of black and white photos, with concise historical and architectural explanations, endeavours to reveal Le Marais's treasures, especially the less known ones, to the visitor who desires to discover them. Among other things, it presents interesting but not sufficiently known museums, luxurious mansions, with sumptuous courtyard fa ades and lovely gardens hidden behind high walls, medieval houses with a wooden framework and Gothic basements and even the castle of 'the Primate of France'.
