ABBESSES

Famous throughout the world, the Abbesses district has kept its village soul, nestled between the Butte Montmartre and the north of Pigalle.

An unchanging setting and the nerve centre of the district, the Place des Abbesses delights lovers of a postcard Paris and bohemian chic life.  Facing its ancient carousel and Wallace fountain, the square is also home to the deepest metro station in Paris, known for its ornate mouth, an artwork by Hector Guimard. This Art Nouveau aedicule is one of the last three of its kind in Paris. It used to stand in front of the Hôtel de Ville and was only moved to the Abbesses station in 1974.

The Saint-Jean de Montmartre church, inaugurated in 1904 and classified as a historic monument in 1966, was the first to be built in reinforced concrete. Covered with red bricks and decorated with enamelled sandstone pastilles, it offers an original architecture mixing Byzantine and Art Nouveau styles.

Although the big fashion names have joined the district, you can still find old-fashioned shops, artists’ studios, cafés, restaurants, and small businesses in Abbesses, where both residents and visitors meet cheerfully. An authentic and lively atmosphere, unique.
