    Louis XIV style, the construction of this arc dated 1672. It is as high as it is wide, about 25 meters. It was classified at the historical monument in 1862. You can admire the bas-relief of this arc, with at its top, on each side, a bas-relief representing "The passage of the Rhine" and "Taking Maastricht". Right next to the arc, at the corner with the street of Faubourg Saint Denis, you can also see the statue of St. Anthony (boss of the butchers) of the sculptor Charles Gauthier in front. It's the sign of a luxurious old deli. A must see! Metro station "Strasbourg - Saint Denis".

    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.  more »

    Because we find it so by chance. It is one of the ancient gates of Paris. It seems that it has been recently restored.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
