This Sunday, November 11, the umbrella, a necessity! for the 20 participants. Certainly, the course was a little modified because of the weather. History stories of the Middle Ages mainly and anecdotes could be made for the most part safe. Gérard J. commented on the beginning of the visit by showing the paving stones delimiting the old “Castle” of Charles V. We continued with ” Porte St-Antoine” to find the location of the “Freedom Tower” from this ancient fortress. Our journey continued with small streets like “Petit Musc” deformation of “whore y musse” which meant “the whore who strolls”to arrive at the pavilion of the Arsenal where, sheltered, we made a little history with “the enclosures ” and “Hotel Saint Pôl” , residence of the King. Our walk continues in the rain. After discovering the world of a Roofing Companion, here we are at St Gervais-St-Protais Church where Martine I. explains the 3 architectural orders. But rather than tell, here is a small photo report.
Malgé a rain continues throughout the day, the sun shone on the faces and did not start the good mood of the participants to discover or rediscover this district South of the Marais. A hike all in history. End of the walk at 5 pm Place de la Bastille.
