There's more to it than meets the eye ...

This little old house in the Montmartre district of Paris has a most interesting and partly violent history that its humble looks do not betray. It has been a cabaret for over 150 years, but much more than that.
Read on if your are interested!

Montmarte retained its village-like character until well into the 19th century, and this building is one of only a few left to reflect that time.

This folksy little place is something I would not expect in Paris. I enjoyed the history writeup, Franz.
