A Sunday Morning Stroll Around the Marais, a District of Paris
Le Marais is an old Parisian district situated on the north bank of the River. It is a glorious mixture of history, architecture, cultures and cuisine. It is home to the Hôtel particulier, a large private mansion incorporating several bedrooms for the use of guests and some grandiose religious buildings reflecting early settlements of religious communities. As cars are not permitted in the central area of the Marais on a Sunday it is the ideal time to walk through this fascinating district. Highlights of my visit included the meringue shop and polyphonic singing.
