10th Arrondissement – Canal St Martin

Positioned towards the north of Paris’ wonderful city centre and upon the right hand side of the majestic River Seine, the 10th arrondissement exudes a charming sense of urban authenticity and is renowned for its ethnically diverse culture, much of which can be sampled within the area’s superb selection of international restaurants, cafes and bars. A fantastic array of iconic landmarks, must see sights and popular attractions can all be found within the district, together with two of the city’s main railway stations, which provide excellent public transport connections to the rest of Paris and further afield.


10th Arrondissement – Canal St Martin Highlights

One of the most popular highlights of the 10th arrondissement of Paris is the picturesque Canal St Martin, which spans across the length of the district and connects the River Seine with the Canal de l’Ourcq.  Lined with green, leafy trees, bohemian cafes and featuring a collection of iron footbridges, the canal boasts some delightful scenery and provides the perfect setting for a picnic beneath the warm, Parisian sunshine.  Every Sunday, the canal’s neighbouring streets adopt a car free zone, creating the ideal place to enjoy a leisurely bike ride.

The 10th arrondissement is also the home to two of Paris’ main railway stations – the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est, which both offer fantastic public transport links not only throughout Paris but also to countries such as Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK.  The Gare du Nord station is also regarded as one of the city’s iconic landmarks and has appeared in several Hollywood films such as the Bourne Identity.  Dating back to the late 1860s and set within an impressive building, the station is bursting with eye-catching sculptures and features some fine examples of truly magnificent architecture.

Another highlight of the area is the fascinating Musée de l’Éventail (Fan Museum), which is definitely worthy of a visit.  Set within the Atelier Anne Hoguet workshop, this alternative museum showcases a remarkable, private collection of around 2000 different fans which range in variety from ornate, Oriental designs to traditional antique creations.  The museum, which opened to the public in the early 1990s, was the first of its kind in the whole of France and can be visited on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, except for in August when it is closed to the public.

Several triumphant arches can also be found within the 10th arrondissement, including the striking Porte Saint-Martin and Porte Saint-Denis.  Although considerably smaller in stature than their famous Parisian relation – the Arc de Triomphe, these two magnificent structures still exhibit a wealth of remarkable detail and are sights certainly not to be missed.  Built in the 1600s, the arches were designed to be used as a replacement to the medieval gateway into the city walls, which were originally created by Charles V.

For those who are looking for a relaxing alternative to the hustle and bustle of the busy city streets, the beautiful Jardin Villemin offers just that.  Set within the grounds of a former military hospital, this attractive, peaceful garden is named after the well-known doctor Jean-Antoine Villemin, who is remembered for his pioneering work on tuberculosis.  Decorated with an abundance of pretty trees and lush green lawns, the Jardin Villemin is maintained by a group of local people as part of a community project.

Many more must see sights and attractions are located within the 10th arrondissement of Paris, making it an area worthy of exploring from one of our Canal St Martin apartments.
