The most beautiful Parisian doors
The most beautiful doors in Paris (and where to find them!)
Location: Avenue Winston Churchill
One of the most incredible entrances in Paris is without any doubts, Petit Palais!
If you can, do not miss this museum: the permanent exhibition is free and the interior garden is really pretty, especially during spring.
However, if you’re planning to take photos, go there before opening times (it opens from 10 am) or on Mondays, when it’s closed.
Location: Place Sainte-Geneviève
One of my favorite areas in Paris has some of the most beautiful doors, too.
A great example is the Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-Mont with its iconic purple facade that you may recognize from Woody Allen’s movie Midnight in Paris.
This area is very lively, pretty close to Sorbonne University so expect a very young and relaxed atmosphere. I sat there just enjoying the place because it felt so nice!
Location: 29 Avenue Rapp
My favorite Art Nouveau building in Paris is without any doubts, the building Lavirotte. Part from its gorgeous facade with intricate floral patterns, its balconies, windows and main door… it also has a sweet view to the Eiffel Tower! I can see my self living here… I wish I could!
Location: Place Monge
Also in Saint Germain, this square has some beatiful doors that deserve some attention!
Location: Boulevard Beaumarchais
Another neighborhood I really love in Paris (or should I speak properly and say arrondissement?) is Le Marais.
Le Marais is a historic and aristocratic area in Paris. Hence, you’ll find many beautiful doors and entrances to former palaces and important buildings here.
Not far from Bastille, Boulevard Beaumarchais has a beautiful collection of unique Parisian doors that you don’t want to miss. It took me so long to get to Bastille because I was stopping every few meters for a doortrait!
Rue de Turenne
Location: Rue de Turenne
Door-wise, rue de Turenne is another paradise! If you also have a thing with doors, you need to stop by.
Lycée des Francs Bourgeois – La Salle
Location: 21 Rue Saint-Antoine
Also in Le Marais we can find an important historic building: the Lycée de Francs Bourgeois – La Salle.
Location: Rue Fabert
Not far from Hotel des Invalides, there are some beautiful colorful entrances that will, for sure, catch your attention.
