The unusual facades of Paris
The Cité Malesherbes in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, between the rue des Martyrs and the rue Victor Massé, has some very beautiful polychrome facades belonging to private mansions. The "Cathédrale" building at 61 rue Réaumur, a 20-minute walk from Maison Mère, is just as impressive. Not far from here in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, discover the oldest house in Paris, that of Nicolas Flamel, nicknamed "the most popular French alchemist" even though he never touched chemistry in his life! It is his legend that was used in the films Harry Potter and The Fantastic Beasts.
