Parc des Buttes Chaumont VIII



Parc des Buttes Chaumont
Temple of Sybil


Although the Temple of Sybil may not appear so high on the cliff, 
it is indeed a hike and a suspension bridge away.  
How can all of this be only a mile or two from the center of Paris?


If the weather cooperates for this last weekend in March, 
the Parisians will be here with friends and family.  
How I wish that I could join them!

I have very similar photos from just a few years ago. Also in March. Was a lovely sunny day in late March.

I was there some days ago; it's really a quiet place.

A beautifully framed image. You often introduce me to parts of Paris that I don't know. Thank you.
Enjoy the weekend Genie.

How lovely Genie. I'll have to check it out next time I am in Paris. Thank you also for the tips you gave us on St Germain des Pres and Ile de la cite, ce sera pour une prochaine visite aussi.

Bon weekend!
