Why are there so many angels illustrated in Parisian architecture, from the Middle Ages through to the 20th century?  From a medieval auberge, where intricately carved musician angels play at the entrance, to cherubs atop a luxurious 18th century mansion built for a princess, to elegant Baroque spirits adorning a great architect’s townhouse, they infuse the neighborhood with grace, beauty and whimsy.  We’ll view the grandest angel in Paris, spanning a Haussmannian ‘palais collectif’, discover Belle Epoque angels bearing blasons, and learn the characteristics of artistic currents influencing French architects and ornamentalist sculptors. Trends transported from their studies in Italy were imbued with a personal  flair.  During our walk we’ll discover a 17th century residence re-designed in neoclassical style by visionary architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux. En route, we’ll stroll through some of the prettiest gardens in Paris, newly-restored, and take a minute to view one of the oldest covered markets in France.  

Date and time: March 16th at 2:30PM
Duration of tour:  approximately 2.5 hours

After these terrible terrorist attacks of Nov 13th, the Eiffel Tower as many monuments all around the World has been enlighted into blue, white and red;  colors of the french national flag.

The 3rd district (North Marais) city hall is also enlighted with the same colours. This city hall is located only few steps from the Republic Square, another symbol of the Revolution and people's resistance . It was built on the place where Louis the 16th and queen Marie-Antoinette where jailed. This part of Le Marais offers a rememberance of french history at every crossroard.

The oldest covered market in Paris is in the Haut Marais (3rd district) and can be found where the rue de Bretagne meets the rue Charlot, taking its name from the former hospice des Enfant-Rouges, which closed its doors in 1777. The hospice, established for the orphans of the area by Marguerite de Navarre was so called as the children's uniforms were red. The efforts of nearby residents and the input from local council team of the 3rd district saved this lovely market from demolition some 20 years ago. Today, with its emblematic history, it has gained cult status in Paris and is seen as an idea spot for socialising. For a more intimate encounter with the market, watch the film made by Laurent Lefèbvre : "le Marais, un trésor à Paris" as part of it was filmed in the market itself.

This week, we bring you news of the most beautiful film ever made about le Marais, and in which we were truly honoured to have taken part.  Directed by Laurent Lefèbvre for Elephant Productions, it was shown at prime time on France 5, the cultural channel of France Télévisions. We were very fortunate to have worked on this wonderful documentary, which was made by people who are passionate about the district, and the film reflected the true issues of the people who live there such as the loss of the identity of their neighbourhood....
