Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole - Theme Day


Au Vieux Paris d'Arcole
depuis 1594


Hidden on a narrow street so very close to Notre Dame, this auberge has been open since 1594.  The structure itself was built in 1512 after completion of the Cathedral.


  The ancient wisteria twists upon itself, 
framing the door and window above.



Today I join the City Daily Photo bloggers with a traditional first day of the month theme, 
this first day of February, "ENTRY."

Inauguré pour l'entrée d'Henri IV à Paris, peut-être ?

It's absolutely lovely! And how old must that wisteria be? Great choice for theme day!

This is rather delightful, isn't it?

Kathy Bateman said...

What a beautiful shot. I'm hoping to visit Paris in Spring and would love to see that wisteria in bloom - can you share where this lovely spot is? Thanks!

Jack said...

This one makes me wince, Genie. My otherwise wonderful neighbors have a huge wisteria vine hanging into my yard from theirs. It is a WEED, and an uncontrollable one, at that!!!

Randy said...

Love that tree/vine.

M said...

Right out of a fairy tale! How I would love to see it in bloom!

Alexa said...

I'm with Marie -- when the wisteria's in bloom, it must match the color of the little table and chairs. This place is enchanting!
