Quartier Porte Saint Denis - Paris 10


Originally, the Porte-Saint-Denis district was the link between the centre of Paris and the Royal Basilica of Saint-Denis. Over the centuries, private mansions and shops began to flourish all over the district. The Saint-Lazare prison, which was located there, then became a hospital before finally being destroyed in the 20th century.
