- It’s always a charm to visit the eternal city and walk on its cobbled streets surrounded by Haussmann’s buildings, always paying attention for the next Space Invader, Monsieur Chat or Clet Abrahams lurking around the corner…
1. Plaçe du Calvaire, Montmartre
A twenty minute walk uphill from the Opera, this neighborhood has been home to many artists including Picasso, who created his “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” during his residency in the area. If you cross Plaçe du Tertre directly to Plaçe du Calvaire a young man will lure you in with his violin to all the striking installations... The breasts by Intralarue were my favorite, so moving!
Took a full day to explore the Canal St. Martin area with its repertoire of concept stores and on-point bookstores, I even stumbled upon a piñata shop- as a Salvadorian, I had a blast talking to the Colombian designers! In this area you get to admire larger murals, fuller installations, and a deeper sense of the local Parisian!
Part of Le Marais falls within the 3eme arrondissement were you are sure to find plenty of art galleries with colorful street art on their façades. As a Barcelona artstigator I was thrilled to spy these goodies! Foto: Zosen Bandido, Mina Hamada an Chanoir . Hope you enjoyed this Journey and check out the Photo Album to see the full-on finds!
