You can access it by the rue du Faubourg Saint Denis, at the height of the No. 107 bis, where you will first cross the small square Alban Satragne, at the end of which by a portal, you will bypass the chapel. This garden will also give you access to the Françoise Sagan library. It is a simple little garden, very quiet. You can come by Metro, lines 4, 5, 7, station "Gare de l'Est".

It is surrounded by the buildings renovated former Clos Saint Lazare. These buildings were the House of correction since 1779, then then transformed in 1779, in prison for women, with short sentences like prostitutes. Louis Pierre Baltard, father of one of the halls, was the architect of the rehabilitation of the prison in 1814. This one must accommodate 820 inmates. Baltard, considers that the prison should be a place where architecture "must contribute to heal moral infirmities of the people". It is how he realizes the complex that we see today with its buildings in galleries with large openings, a courtyard and an inner garden and a chapel, located next to and including the semi circular apse is terraced garden. The building in white stone, located in front of the chapel was the infirmary. It is a building on 3 levels with openings in arch, topped with a top floor with square openings, and a separation molded cornice. But other parts of the building, seen from the outside, reserved for cells, are closed, as if he were a cloister. The smaller openings are then side inside. The inner garden, we see today, is a rehabilitation of the Court. It is inspired by the Mediterranean cloisters and is planted with Palm trees, low shrubs and plants often flower. Benches allow to rest and the setting is truly exceptional. This garden is accessible by the square Alban-Satragne at the level of the No. 108 street of Faubourg Saint Denis. After crossing the square, he must work around the chapel that we see at the bottom and we arrive in the garden. The nearest metro station is "East station", lines No. 4, 5 and 7 and the RER D. Then out of the station, take left the street on 8 May 1945, which leads Boulevard de Magenta. The suburb Saint Denis Street is in front slightly on the left.
Hidden green oasis. Nice sunny spots and benches to relax.
Unlikely place in the 10th arrondissement. A change of scenery guaranteed.
