Description

An exciting visit in the heart of Paris, Balzac and Zola.

Ancestors of our modern shopping centers, created in the early 19th century at the confines of the Palais-Royal. Arcades, with Greek and Egyptian motifs, covered with a canopy, inspired by the models of arcades and Arab souks.

Towards Diderot on the bench of Argenson, Vidocq, Colette, and other famous mythical characters whose memory haunts the place...
