The hidden heart of Paris

Parisian districts
Led by a tour guide, you will take a journey through time into the heart of unknown and mysterious Paris.

A dark side mixing legends and black magic is hidden behind the City of Lights…

Your guided tour will begin by evocating the Conciergerie, one of the symbols of the Ile de la Cité, but also one of the most famous and dreaded prisons…

Going to the center of Paris, you’ll learn all about bloody murders, alchemy and dark magic.
Facing Saint-Jacques Tower, you will understand how reality beats fiction, and in the heart of rue de la Ferronnerie you will learn how “le vert gallant” (The Green Galant) died…

After having mentioned the former Holy Innocents’ Cemetery – which was decorated long ago with a continuous frieze of macabre art, the guided tour will end at the astrological and astronomical tower of the Black Queen. In fact, the magician at the service of Catherine de Medicis practiced black magic inside this tower. Some people say that his ghost still comes back to haunt the tower during stormy nights…
