  • In the 7th arrondissement, at 148 rue de Grenelle, you will discover a beautiful building with a Caryatid and an Atlante that support the balcony of the second floor. The position of the characters is peculiar by the fact that they seem to cling and the man has the face against the façade. Take a good look at the details. You can come by Metro, line 8, station "Latour-Maubourg".

There it stops its course. It is then located inside the wall of the farmers General created around Paris in 1760 which passes through the Boulevard de Grenelle. During the second empire and the extension of Paris to neighbouring communes, in 1860, the village of Grenelle will be integrated into the new 15th arrondissement. The rue de Grenelle, which crosses a small part of the 6th and especially the 7th arrondissement, is not at all concerned with the works of Haussmann.
