Poissonnière Apartments

The Poissonnière district: lively and multicultural

To the north of the Grands Boulevards, lies Poissonnière, a district with a great location where some of the atmosphere of the old suburbs of Paris still remains. Renting an apartment there is very practical for a vacation in Paris. Perfectly located, it lies just to the west of the Opéra district with its monuments and department stores, and to the south is the Grands-Boulevards theater district.

The Poissonnière district, near the Grands-Boulevards

Lively and multicultural, this district has a lot of small, reasonably priced restaurants and French and exotic food stores. Working class and always buzzing, the Poissonnière district retains some of the atmosphere of the old suburbs of Paris, spiced up with a dash of multiculturalism. For many years it was occupied by religious orders, such as the Lazarists and the Filles-Dieu, but the district gradually became urbanized starting in the 18th century. The 19th century saw the arrival of pottery houses and glass houses (Baccarat, Saint-Louis).

Things to see and do in Poissonnière.

The Eglise Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, started in 1824 and completed in 1844, is the last great classical church in Paris, heavily influenced by the Roman basilicas. To the south of the district stands the majestic Porte Saint-Denis, a triumphal arch inspired by the Arch of Titus in Rome, constructed in 1672 in honor of Louis XIV. Square Montholon (Rue Lafayette) is one of the many typically Parisian 19th century squares. It is encircled by fences and shaded by Oriental planes that are more than a hundred years old.

The Poissonnière district and its multicultural stores

If you have a craving for Italian goods, head to the delicious Cooperativa Latte Cisternino. To rediscover the taste of traditional confectionery, try Mère de Famille, a fabulous delicatessen with authentic, old decor. In addition to these gourmet locations, there are also many general stores in the area. The district is served by the Poissonnière and Cadet metro stations (line 7).
