  • La Fontaine du Chaume is close to the Hotel des archives. There is no water that has been flowing for a long time
    View original
  • In the 4th arrondissement, at the corner of the rue des Francs Bourgeois and the archives, you will discover in the façade of the Palais Soubise, a convex part with a door, overlooked by a pediment. It was a fountain, built in 1710 by the architect Jean Beausire. Prince Soubise had yielded part of his land to implant this fountain. Beneath the pediment, a black marble plaque, illegible, made a thank-you for this gift. Slightly above ground level are two metal plates. One has a nave, the emblem of the city of Paris and the other indicates water level readings including that of the sea measured at the port of Marseille. There is no more water outlet. You can come by Metro, line 11, station "Rambuteau".
