Paris Photo Essays: Les Invalides

What do you know…I still have some Paris photos left that I didn’t get around to posting! These are just a few from the day that we went to the 7th arrondissement (also known as Les Invalides, I think?), on the Left Bank, so we could visit this thing called theย Eiffel Tower…maybe you’ve heard of it? :). Along the way we stopped in the cutest little Parisian cafe called Le Boulanger des Invalides Jocteur, which was within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower. It was a fun outing and I’m still dreaming of that tarte tatin!

Did you know that not just any bakery in France is allowed to call itself a “boulangerie”? In order to do so, theyย have to make their bread on premises, so if it has “boulangerie” in the title of the shop, you know it’s the real deal. If not, move along! We learned this on our food tour in Montmartre.

Can’t get enough of that architecture. I added a lot of Paris photos to my Etsy shop – you can check them out under the Travel section!

    Beautiful as always Jackie!
    Actually the name “Les Invalides” doesn’t refer to the whole 7th arrondissement, but to the huge complex of building with the golden dome that you photographed. Inside there are museums and monuments, all relating to the military history of France. There’s also the mausoleum for Napoleon Bonaparte. The Wikipedia page is accurate: ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ahh thanks Marine! Is there a name or nickname for the neighborhood in general?
