The area opened on Sundays is Le Marais. Head down this direction for cool events and shopping. Many restaurants, bars and cafes surround the area and lovely boutiques with unique offerings.

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
