The Legends of Paris

Rumors from time immemorial say that the city of Paris has unspokensecrets... 

Much more than a tourist guidebook, The Legends of Paris takes you on a journey to the heart of the capital’s legends and uncovers a totallynew side of Paris. 

Through ten unique and unusual routes that bring together strange legends and weird anecdotes, period engravings and mysterious photos, Guillaume Bertrand offers a compelling experience filled with esotericism, crimes of passion, ghost stories, and other mysteries. 

Walk in the footsteps of the great revolutionaries from the Palais Royal to the Madeleine; wander through the alleys of old Paris in search of the bloody barber and the hooded monk; discover the secrets of the catacombs; stroll through the libertine and scandalous side of the Marais; and explore a Paris of crime through themost famous criminal cases.
