One of the oldest districts in the city, "Le Marais" means "Marshland" due to its placement in the upper right bank of the Seine. Home to the wealthy Parisian nobility in the 17th century, the Marais is populated by elegant and historical "Hotels Particuliers" or mansions. Today, the Marais is one of the most enchanting "villages" in the city and will delight the visitor with both its history and architecture as well as its diversity.
