Rue du Faubourg Saint Antoine


The Faubourg Saint Antoine street is in the east of Paris leading from Nation square to Bastille square. You can see the top of the Bastille column in the far background. This is a busy street with a lot of shops, cafés and restaurant. That's the street I am riding when going from home to center Paris on my Velib.

We walked this Faubourg hunting for fountains. If I remember well a couple of monumental ones were on the street itself, a minor one was inside the market nearby.

So typically and wonderfully Parisian!

I love to see pictures of Paris and its people. I know the South and West sides of Paris very well but I don't know this part of Paris at all. Thank you for those beautiful pictures.
