THE UNUSUAL STREETS OF PARIS
THE WALT LOVES THE UNUSUAL STREETS OF PARIS
A stroll in Paris always brings us new surprises. When the good weather returns, we like to get lost in the picturesque alleys of Paris. During each of our walks, we discover new streets, new addresses, it’s magical!
There are boroughs such as the 11th and 12th arrondissement where you can get lost in authentic alleys, far from the main avenues and the hustle and bustle of Paris. The 11th arrondissement of Paris is probably one of our favourites. It includes many courses, passages and unique addresses.
During these walks, we observe the architectural style of Parisian dwellings. It is possible to discern dozens of architectural styles on the facades of these buildings. As you stroll around looking up in the air, you will make unexpected discoveries. The architects have created real treasures to seduce us!
With its facades of all colors, the Crémieux street is a real invitation to travel. Its cobblestones, its shimmering colors give it a lot of charm.
This bucolic street gives the impression of being in a southern city, a warm city. It can be compared to the streets of Valparaiso in Chile or to the island of Burano in Venice, and yet Crémieux street is only a few steps away from Gare de Lyon!
In 1857, the street was built and was then composed of 35 pavilions which at the time cost only 700 francs in rent. Conceived on the model of the workers' towns, it was named avenue Millaud at its creation and renamed in 1897 in homage to Gaston Crémieux, defender of the blue-collar workers' cause.
To get there, we recommend you take the metro line 8 and get off at the Ledru-Rollin stop, Crémieux street is a few minutes walk away.
Once on the street, be sure to stop at number 8, which indicates that the water reached the record high of 1m75 during the 1910 flood.
The detour in this old-fashioned street will confirm that Paris is an eternal treasure hunt!
