The unusual streets
A stroll through Paris always brings new surprises. When the sun comes back I like to lose myself in the picturesque Parisian alleys and each time I walk I discover new streets, new addresses, it's magical!
There are districts such as the 11th and 12th arrondissements 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 undoubtedly one of my favourites. It includes many courses, passages and unique addresses.
During these walks, I like to observe the architectural style of Parisian houses. It is possible to discern dozens of architectural styles on the facades of these buildings. As you walk around with your nose in the air, my dear readers, you will make unsuspected discoveries. The architects have created real treasures to seduce us!
The Cremieux street
With its facades of all colours, the Crémieux street is a real invitation to travel. Its cobblestones, its shimmering colours give it a lot of charm.
This bucolic street gives the impression of being in a southern city, a warm city. I like to compare it to the streets of Valparaiso in Chile or the island of Burano in Venice, and yet, rue Crémieux is only a few steps from the Gare de Lyon!
In 1857, the street was built and consisted of 35 pavilions which at the time cost only 700 francs in rent. Imagined on the model of workers' cities, it was named avenue Millaud when it was created and then renamed in 1897 in tribute to Gaston Crémieux, defender of the workers' cause.
Be sure to stop at number 8, which indicates that the water reached a record level of 1.75 metres during the 1910 flood.
The detour into this street with its old-fashioned appearance will confirm that Paris is an eternal treasure hunt!
