4th arrondissement of Paris, Paris

save place
looking up, looking down...
Wandering among the Renaissance buildings in the Marais district in Paris, this courtyard in the 15th-c. Hôtel de Sens gave me one of my favorite visual memories of the city--this corner balcony. You just have to love the irreverance of the mini-gargoyle drain spout.

Built in the 1470's, this palace has been the residence of an archbishop and a former queen. Today it's a library...and it's free.
