A visit to discover the multiple facets of the Marais in the center of Paris. All visits are free!
The Marais is a district located in the heart of Paris. As its name indicates, the place was once a marshy area. Today it has changed a lot and we can see the different stages of its development over the centuries. The district was once the district of the nobility who built sumptuous mansions such as the Hôtel de Lamoignon. The Marais then underwent important changes and was for a long time unhealthy. In the 20th century the district welcomed a strong Jewish community. Nowadays it is one of the centers of the homosexual community of Paris. All this makes the visit very interesting, one passes quickly from the past to the modernity. It should be noted that the district is pedestrian on the weekend, there are many small stores open and the affluence can be important in the small streets of the Marais. Don't hesitate to visit this district, a mixture of many influences.
