Paris in the Middle Ages:

Saturday, March 29th

What Paris could have looked like in the time of the Hunchback of Notre-Dame: the Paris of the Middle Ages.

The visit will start underground next to the parking lot of the Louvre Museum where the Wall of Charles V (1338-1380) was rediscovered in the 8Os. After walking to the Tour St. Jacques, we will stroll along the right bank of the river Seine stopping by the typically medieval houses and gardens of the times.

La rue des Jardins-Saint-Paul will give us a unique opportunity to see a quiet portion of the Philip Augustus Wall (the first medieval protection of the Capital City), with part of the Tour Montgomery (named after the man who accidentally killed King Henri II during a tournament in 1552).
Our last two stages will be dedicated to the infamous Bastille.

A 15/20 minute break will be included during this walk.                 
Please come prepared for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. 

Instructor: Emmanuel Putois
