Info about Beaubourg, Paris
The Beaubourg neighborhood is smack in the center of Paris, between les Halles and the Marais, close to the Centre Pompidou museum of modern and contemporary art. During the 1970s the narrow streets and low rise buildings were shared by merchants working in the nearby markets and prostitutes. Today an intensive clean-up has put a new face on the area and revealed the beauty of the buildings, intricate iron work, and colorful doorways dating to the Middle Ages. Also of interest are the numerous boutiques and art galleries that suit nearly every taste. Staying in the Beaubourg neighborhood allows visitors a chance to do some great shopping as well as art appreciation. One particular sight not to miss in the church of Saint-Merri, erected in the 16th century, with a gothic exterior that contrasts sharply with the simple interior. In Beaubourg Paris you will discover the oldest streets of the city with their typical cobblestones and drainage in the center.
