Secret Paris Detail

Secret Paris (4TH ed.)

Secret ParisSecret Paris by Jacques Garance & Maud Ratton

A priest who blesses animals, winemaking firefighters, a tree in a church, an inverted phallus at a well-known entrance, an atomic bomb shelter under Gare de l Est, a real Breton lighthouse near Montparnasse, unsuspected traces of former brothels, a patron saint of motorists, royal monograms hidden in the Louvre courtyard, the presentation of Christ s crown of thorns, a prehistoric merry-go- round, a sundial designed by Dali, war-wounded palm trees, bullet holes at the ministry, religious plants in a priest s garden, a mysterious monument to Freemasonry at the Champ-de-Mars, a solid gold sphere in parliament, a Chinese temple in a parking lot, the effect of the Bievre river on Parisian geography, a blockhouse in the Bois de Boulogne.  For those who thought they knew Paris well, the city is still teeming with unusual and secret places that are easily accessible.
