If many today consider it as a must-see in any visit to Paris, the Marais district was, in the early 20th cent., no less than a real no-go zone! Rarely though have splendour and poverty been so close in one district. From the first swamps cultivated by the religious communities to the diversified shopping life of today, this cosmopolitan and lively district walks on with the pockets full of History. Every step made here between the different communities that enrich the district –Jewish communities, LGBT, the small world of contemporary art…– and the various architectures that colour it –from hidden memories of the 12th cent. to drops of contemporary constructions, and the thousands of eloquent faces of the 17th and 18th cent.– reminds us that just like Rome, Paris wasn’t built in a day!
Follow us through square and alleys throughout the history of this amazing neighbourhood, where parks hide to better surprise, and where the making of history never stopped. During this visit from Place des Vosges to Square du Temple, we will bring back the memories of the Duke of Sully, of André Malraux and of Madame de Sevigné, but also of some that history forgot, just like the Deputy Director of the Brazilian Positivist Church or the young Count of Montgommery, who unintentionally opened the door to one of the most important urban operations of the Marais!
