Description

Most of them built in 19th century, these galleries drilled in the middle of buildings and surmounted by windows constitute a typical architectural curiosity of Paris. The majority shelter shops, tearooms or restaurants. Situated around Grand boulevards, we count approximately 20 galleries in Paris. Hidden within buildings, they keep jealously their secrets away from the traditional tourist paths. Some of them abandoned in the past, they are reborn thanks to the collectors, the creators and fascinated today. Famous for their stores of fashion, they are also brands of fashionistas!

Built at the beginning of the XIXth, these galleries built with modern materials revolutionizing the urban landscape of Paris. Imagine what looked like old Paris? There were no sewers, no street lighting. To walk in streets was a route full of pitfalls and the theater of all the dangers. The passages bring an organization and a new hygiene to the city. The « Bourgeois » can finally purchase shielded from the wind and the bad weather. They prefigure of certain one way our shopping malls!

We shall begin the visit with the gallery Vérot-Dodat. This passage full of charm is situated not far from the Palais Royal. He shelters antique stores and official store of the designer of shoes Christian Louboutin today, famous for his beautiful shoes in the red soles. We shall continue with the discovery of the gallery Vivienne who distinguishes himself by her windows and his colored mosaics. She shelters shops of creators and numerous art galleries. Jean-Paul Gautier opened it his store. Finally, by approaching us grand boulevards, we shall borrow the oldest passage of the Panoramas, the oldest, built in 1799. He kept his stamp of former days and his trading atmosphere. Finally, we shall end the visit with the famous passage Jouffroy famous for its beautiful glass architecture and its marble tiled floor. It shelters the Grévin museum, the museum of the wax characters, and also numerous original shops.
