  • This is a lovely little "folly" in a high spot in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont and and excellent place to take some nice photographs of the park and some selfies too. Nice also to stand and enjoy the ...  more »
  • This kiosk, also called "Temple of the Sibyl", is located at the top of the Belvedere island of the buttes Chaumont Park. The architect Gabriel Jean Antoine Davioud was inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli (Italy) and created in 1866 the Temple of Sybille. In ancient Greece, "Sybille" was a woman realizing divinations. This temple consists of a circle topped with corintian columns. On his hat, you will see many lion masquerons. From this high place, you dominate the Park. A beautiful realization.

  • The views are lovely from the temple, and there's plenty of space to sit and relax while you're up there. The climb is not so bad, and the views are really nice from bottom to top. I greatly recommend heading to the lower bridge as well, it's a suspension bridge designed by Gustav Eiffel and it's pretty cool to walk across. If you're afraid of heights the temple probably won't frighten you, but the suspension bridge might - it does give a wiggle as you walk across.
  • It's not about the Temple, it's about the whole Park! Just a beautiful, calm place in the heart of Paris. Much better than the Jardin du Luxembourg.
