In context : Strolling through the courtyards of Bastille
(From : Passage Lhomme). Now have a look at the Passage Josset and, a little on the left after getting back into de Charonne street, the Cour Delépine. Go back to du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine street by getting to Ledru-Rollin avenue and taking it to the right. Head to Bastille again (to the right then) and have a look at the courtyards at number 71, 74, 75, 81-83, 89 and 95, du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine street (we told you there were many of them !). Then turn right at the crossroads with Ledru-Rollin avenue : follow Traversière street and turn left towards d'Aligre square.
The Place d'Aligre houses 2 markets : one is covered (Beauvau Market), the other is not.
Although there's a market here since 1779, the building is a 1843 hall (the 2 previous ones were demolished) whose now absent wings made it look like a kind of chapel, hence the local nickname "Notre-Dame-d'Aligre".
The busy picturesque market is known to be the cheapest of Paris. Secondhand goods can be found on the outside.
