Original art gallery

A nice place to stop by at least for the art exhibitions. The Lutherian church is well preserved. It offers a peaceful break from the busy streets of Paris. Entrance is free.

Stumbled upon this place quite by accident. The Cloître des Billettes is the only remaining medieval cloister in Paris. It takes it name from the former convent there, which housed the brothers of the Charité de Notre-Dame called Billettes, who later were given the name of Carmes (Carmites). The cloister is particularly remarkable for its very beautiful flamboyant vaults (arches).... More

The Cloitre itself is very small and disappointing. Very little to see so they have contemporary art of questionable quality hung here for sale. The attached church was closed and we were told that it was rarely open. The particular section of rue des Archives where this is located is pretty grubby.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
