I’ve been meaning to visit here since our failed attempt in Term 1. My best friend and I took some time this week to check out the largest Mosque in Paris. If you want to see the not-so-typical side of Paris, this definitely has to be on your list.
I was definitely blown away- the architecture is so beautiful. All of the colours, design, and nature prove why it is the best known Mosque in Paris. For a second, you might even forget you are in Paris.
With a very reasonable entry of €2 for student visitors (and €3 for others), it is an interesting side of Paris to discover.
There is also a tea room that I wrote about here, with some seriously tasty Moroccan Tea, as well as other treats.
2bis Place du Puits de l’Ermite, Metro Place Monge, Ligne 7.
Closed on Fridays.
Whilst in the area, why not also check out the Jardin des Plantes? The botanical garden makes for a lovely stroll, has a small zoo and also houses the Natural History Museum. Post coming soon!
