The place is in the middle of Paris' fascinating canals and where you will catch the terrific barge tour on Canal St. Martin. See the old toll house building, now with a lovely cafe/restaurant. Meeting place for lots of immigrants.

Beautiful place, lots of nice restaurants, very local and good feeling, in spring the blossoms are beautiful. Very relaxed, not too many tourists, definitely worth exploring if you wanna get away from all the crowdy obvious places

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
