  • Come see one of Paris' famous working class neighborhoods, now full of immigrants. Some splendid views as it is up on the hill.  more »
  • The truth that is a completely normal neighbourhood with a very populated by stores and shops multicultural Street. If you leave a little of the main Avenue, neighborhood cleaning leaves much to be desired. Also certain streets at night does not make you feel especially safe... But in general, it is a neighborhood of simple and friendly people.

  • The District of Ménilmontant in the 20 th arrondissement of Paris and is located around the street of the same name which starts with the Boulevard de Ménilmontant and Belleville. It is a popular area of Paris and historical tradition rather rebellious. It was originally a village in the commune of Belleville, where also gypsum quarries, closed in 1779 after a terrible accident as well as vineyards. Because of its dominant position in Paris, and outside the walls of the farmers General, before the integration of Belleville in the new Paris in 1860 and its 20 districts, Ménilmontant is the place to relax and resort where some guinguettes from the 18 th century. The philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau had in 1776, events at the origin of his book "Reveries of a solitary Walker" originally this place was called "Mesnil Mau time" which quickly transformed into Mesnil amount because of the slope of the street. Today the old Parisian call this area "Ménilmuche", because of its situation, Ménilmontant is the capture of many sources which some remains survive today. During the revolution, due to its dominant position, the top of Ménilmontant receives a telegraph, a metro station is named in the tops of Belleville. Finally, there are still the remains of the former railway to the small belt built under Napoleon III, with still existing tracks, the location of the former station of "Ménilmontant" noted by a simple tourist sign and a metal footbridge spanning the tracks. It lies behind the church Our Lady of the cross, which dates from 1880. This large church has a monumental staircase and a high Bell Tower of Néo Roman and neo-Gothic styles. The place located behind the Church bears the name lovely "place of the Sources of the North" where fountains were present in the past and the street leading to it is called "The pond Street" around the street of Ménilmontant, there are still small islets of greenery and low houses, in dead ends or alleys that it is interesting to discover. Especially around the street of the Hermitage, which leaves from the street of Ménilmontant in the middle of the track, are charming spaces with small flowery streets, houses with garden. Especially to visit "the Villa of the Hermitage" leading from the street of the same name, the city of the Hermitage, which leaves from the street of Ménilmontant. Later in the street of the Hermitage take the stairs on the left, named "Rue Fernand Renaud" hole in the street stunts and Savies at the corner of which lies a former "Fons" or fountain, water with a bow roof and a plaque in Latin from 1722. In these areas it feels like really "in a Village" at the bottom of the street of Ménilmontant, just after the street Victor Letalle, there is also a charming passage called "City of the maze" that runs through the homes. Same street Boyer at numbers 19 and 21 is "la Bellevilloise" concert hall and versatile continues the labor movements of the last century, with a building style 1920 just before the street of the Pyrenees, you can see right, the beautiful building of style "neo Antique", built by the Goncourt, old country house from the 18th century family and the so-called "Of the square of Baudoin" square by continuing the ascent of the street of Ménilmontant and after crossing the street from the Pyrenees, you can do a well-deserved break by the efforts made, in Ménilmontant charming square with its rose gardens, the flower beds and its shadows. This upper part of the street there is a bird's eye view on Paris and you can see some famous monuments. This district is accessible by the metro station "Ménilmontant" line no. 2
