Paris 4th: Le Marais

Paris, Place des Vosges

Le Marais is a neighborhood in Paris that is very ancient and it undoubtedly has a certain charm, which I love. There’s a lot of crooked streets and well-known stores as well as small unique boutiques.

The rue des Rosiers, one of the main streets, is a major centre of the Paris Jewish community so you’ll find lots of religious bookshops and jewelries as well as falafel restaurants. Hidden on one side of the street (like literally, I discovered it by chance while taking these photos – and I walked there many times), is the door leading to the Jardin des Rosiers, a nice green area that lets you escape from the busy street.

Parallel to this street, you can find the rue des Francs-Bourgeois, where the Musée Carnavalet is located, alongside beauty, fashion & interior boutiques. At the end of the street you’ll find a large place called Place des Vosges which is surrounded by the arcades of two large pavillons.
