La promenade plantée 2/3


Continuing my "Promenade Plantée" serie, here is the street view of the former railway viaduct on the Avenue Daumesnil on top of which lies the "Promenade Plantée".
The viaduc itself is known as "Le Viaduc des Arts". It was built in 1859 and renovated by the city in the 90's. The vaults have been transformed into exhibition halls and shops for professionnals and artists. You can have more informations about the Viaduc des Arts on its website (French & English).

This is really an elegant place to take photographs.

Viaducts (and aqueducts) allways make great photos like this one!
