I don't know what I like more, the splendid architecture of this very old arch (with its important history), or the vibrant aspect of this dynamic Paris neighborhood, full of diverse people scurrying about. Lots to see here, lots of good food and drink, lots...More

Walk along Rue Saint-Denis and you will suddenly come across this interesting feature. Apparently the "porte" was one of the original gates to the city along one of the original streets.

Big arch built by Louis XIV now in an interesting diverse area in the middle of the old city. It's safe; don't be discouraged by the sex shops in the area.

As gorgeous as the Triumph Arch, just less famous than it. It also reminded me of Brandemburg Gate, which is normal, since these kinds of passage were standard in Middle Age.

Something different than the usual. Great surroundings with little bars and restaurants. Awesome vibe in the area.

We were wandering around and encountered this gate. Beware of the pigeons and strong odor.... It is interesting to look at from a distance. Original gate ordered built by King.

modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
