Place des Abbesses, Paris, France, 2012[open in full screen]  

 
 

Place des Abbesses is everything one might imagine for charming and scenic Paris square. it deserves special attention from us urban squares enthusiasts and I'll try to show my respect.

I'll tell you to just come here to sit, drink coffee or vin rouge, read a good book, and pass the time of day in the most pleasant way.

  Artists are everywhere almost exclusively performing for us. Even larger version of the "Wallace" fountain, mentioned in more detail on one of the other squares in paris [link] is present here too.

The square Sehan Rictus, park connected to the Place des Abbesses, will offer you a place to get away from shops and enjoy romantic Paris.

Nothing is missing, is it understandable now why this square scored a perfect 60 points?

  Tip for visitors: Owner of the apartment we stayed nearby recommended us "Coquelicot" eatery just few steps from the square. It is always extremely busy but it is worth trying. Small jazz band usually plays really nice music in front of it.
