SAINT-BLAISE

The Saint-Blaise district, located in the 20th arrondissement in the northeast of Paris, between rue des Pyrénées and boulevard de Charonne, is a dynamic and picturesque district.

A district in flux since 2002, included in the Great Urban Renewal Project, the district has nevertheless managed to retain a warm atmosphere, far from the tourist bustle of the city center. There are many local shops, lively markets and pleasant green spaces, such as Square Antoine Blondin.

Saint-Blaise is known for its heterogeneous architecture, combining influences from the past and contemporary touches. Integrating the village of Charonne, the district has kept the charm of the old Parisian suburbs. The narrow, winding streets are lined with buildings with colorful facades, offering a bucolic charm. The remarkable Saint-Germain-de-Charonne church, listed as a historical monument, sits as the mother of the district.

A charming mix of tradition and modernity where life is good.

Its streets are home to the neo-Gothic church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Belleville, as well as the Plateau, a 600 m2 exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art. The food shops rub shoulders with decoration boutiques, cafés and new trendy restaurants.
