Cour du Commerce Saint André



Cour du Commerce Saint André


This covered passageway was opened in 1776,
 running between rue Saint André des Arts 
and boulevard Saint Germain. 


 It also follows a section of the perimeter wall
 built by King Philippe-Auguste in the late 13th century.

A view through an arch is my favourite kind of view. 1776, that's an amazing age to me here in 'young' Perth Genie :)

And it offers great framing opportunities for the photographer!

This wonderful photo got me up out of a cozy chair to seek my Paris map. For others who might be interested, Cour du Commerce St André runs into Bd St Germain near Métro Odéon. I would love to know more about the shops.....
