Beaubourg, Bourg-l'Abbé and Saint-Martin-des-Champs in 1450 (Atlas historique de Paris):




We go to the right bank. In the middle ages the south bank was called "l'Université", the island in the Seine "la Cité" (the City), and the right bank "la Ville" (city of trade) protected by the wall of Philip Augustus but also the one decided by king Charles V in 1365 (demolished by Louis XIV giving way to the "boulevards").

Rue Volta, once rue Frépillon which existed in 1269. # 3, the house was built like a medieval house in 1644, in spite of the fact that the construction of timbered houses was forbidden. Brisavoine already told about that, post #108. In Paris wooden beams are still hidden under plaster, I will show you, in another neighborhood, an example of renovation that reveals the timber frame.

The church of Saint-Martin-des-Champs stood in the now musée national des Arts et Métiers. The church existed as early as the 7th or 6th century according to archaeological digs. When it was plundered by the Normans at the end of the 9th it was an abbey. Later it became a priory. During the revolution the priory was a prison, a part was dedicated to the Museum of Arts and Crafts, and the other buildings torn down.

Le Temple in 1450 (Atlas historique de Paris):




The Temple was a fortress built by the Templars. The main buildings were the Church, the Tower and the Palace. The Tower or keep, 50 m high, remained intact from the 13th century to 1811 date of its demolition.


The Temple was a city in the city:

The Tower in 1450:


http://mitchtestone.blogspot.fr/2011...is-temple.html


The Church was torn down during the last years of the 18th century and the Palace in 1853. Nothing remains of the Temple except doors of the Tower (kept at Château de Vincennes) and some fragments of its defensive wall.


32, rue de Picardie, the concave wall section corresponds to the south-eastern tower of the wall.

The doors:

Impasse des Arbalétriers was a lane leading to the Hôtel Barbette and also a training camp for crossbowmen, hence the name. The corbelled houses dates from 1610.

La Bastille, was a fortress built in 1382, three centuries later it became a prison/jail and finally was destroyed at the revolution.

Nearby Hôtel Saint-Pol, the Couvent des Célestins, the second most important burial site for royalty (after the Basilique Saint-Denis), was created in 1352 and demolished in the 19th century, giving way to the boulevard Henri IV and the Celestins' barracks for the Republican Guard.

Village Saint-Paul, in the medieval times the neighborhood was built with a concern of comfort and hygiene, large open spaces between buildings and numerous courtyards and gardens. There was a system of channels, gutters and a covered sewer called Pont-Perrin. The houses were covered with tiles and the walls were made of wood or bricks. Paradoxically, Saint-Paul, now a densely built-up area, is famous for its courtyards.
