Paris Insolitas y Secreta (Secret)


Paris Insolitas y Secreta (Secret) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Un sacerdote que bendice los animales, bomberos vinicultores, un falo invertido en una famosa puerta de entrada, un árbol en una iglesia, un albergue antiatómico en la Gare de lEst, un auténtico faro bretón cerca de Montparnasse, insospechados vestigios de burdeles, monogramas reales escondidos en el Cour Carrée del Louvre, la presentación de la corona de espinas de Cristo, un reloj solar diseñado por Dalí, un misterioso monumento francmasón en el Champ-de-Mars, un templo chino en un parking…

Para aquellos que creen conocer bien París, aún quedan muchos lugares insólitos y secretos que es posible visitar.


A priest who blesses animals, wine producing firement, a tree in a church, an inverted phallus at a famous entrance, an atomic bomb shelter under the Gare de lEst, a real Breton lighthouse near Montparnasse, unsuspected traces of former brothels, a patron saint of motorists, royal monograms hidden in the Louvre courtyard, the presentation of Christs crown of thorns, a prehistoric merry-go-round, a sundial designed by Dali, war-wounded palm trees, bullet holes at the ministry, biblical plants in a priests garden, a mysterious monument to freemasonry at the Champs-de-Mars, a solid gold sphere in parliament, a Chinese temple in a parking lot, the effect of the Bièvre river on Parisian geography, a blockhouse in the Bois de Boulogne…


For those who thought they know Paris well, the city is still teeming with unusual and secret places that are easily accessible.
