Neighborhood: 4th Arrondissement

At number 1-3 rue Ursins stands a very old house with a Medieval tower and windows. No doubt, you are facing a bourgeois mansion from medieval times. You may think you can feel a kind of feudal atmosphere in this street, even in this area, but not really! The architect Fernand Poullion built this incredible house in 1958: it is a patchwork of the old house that was located right here and various elements and materials collected from medieval ruins (wrought iron, stained glass windows…). The result is very confusing. The location – facing the Seine river, near Notre-Dame church and Hôtel de Ville – makes this house one of the most sought-after houses of the Capital. It is the former residence of Aga-Khan, and would be owned today by a Middle East Prince. Call +33 8 3668 3112 (Tourist Information)
