In context : A short overview of the Marais
(From : European House of Photography). Keep going on Fourcy street, then turn left on Charlemagne street and right on du Figuier street, up to the Hôtel de Sens.
Will you be up to the challenge ?
- Will you be able to find it, on one of the walls of the Hôtel de Sens ? There is even a date written under it : July 28th, 1930, when it was fired during the Trois Glorieuses (French July Revolution).
It was originally owned by the archbishops of Sens (a city 120km south of Paris). The building, built between 1475 and 1507, is late Gothic and early Renaissance style. It is one of three medieval private residences remaining in Paris.
It now houses the Forney art library.
