About Me

Restored Mansions

The spine of the old town St Denis runs from the central park (Le Jarine de l'État) to the sea with the cannons on the boulevard, as Rue de Paris/Avenue de la Victoire. Most of the buildings along this road are restored or reconstructed mansions from the early 1800's and the architecture is itself something to see. A few are museums and galleries, some seem to be government buildings while a few seem to remain in private hands. Even the lamp posts harken back to an old era where everything needed to be ornate.
