Today, a trip around the Marais shows the numerous restorations it has seen. The neighborhood contains some of the oldest buildings in Paris, and their architectural treasures make the Marais a charming and unforgettable place to visit.




Le Marais n'est à l'origine qu'un vaste marécage et ce n'est qu'à partir du XIIIè que l'on voit s'y installer des couvents et débuter la culture.
Le Marais a de nos jours fait l'objet de nombreuses restaurations mettant en valeur tous ces trésors d'architecture et lui redonnant tout son charme faisant de ce quartier un lieu de visites inoubliable.
