Discover with our guide Catherine this charming and peaceful walk through this typical district of Paris, located near the Place d’Italie, in the 13th district. La Butte aux Cailles is a special place in Paris: it has kept the atmosphere of a provincial village, with its peaceful streets, is street art paintings, its hilly streets. It was once home to a lot of communities who settled down in Paris either for political reasons (la Petite Russie) or for job opportunities (la Petite Alsace): the original settlements can still be seen. The Place de l’Abbé Hénocque with its charming houses, the Poterne des Peupliers, the artesian well, Sainte Anne de la Butte-aux-Cailles church will be amongst our discoveries.
