Absolutely brilliant. I can't wait to check the city out in person next year. The kind of place one could spend forever exploring.

Thanks guys for comments. In Central Paris nearly every single street is worth visiting, the density of beautiful und noble buildings is simply amazing - almost too perfect.

christos-greece, the monument you were asking for is la Porte Saint-Matin, near the Metro station Strasbourg-Saint-Denis.

It's actually wrong. This was the picture of Porte Saint Denis which is exactly here.

But right on the east (around 150m) there is Porte Saint Martin whick look like that:

@Sacré Coeur
Merci pour la correction
Yeah, I now remember there were two arches. But the Porte Saint-Denis (my pic) looks much better than Porte Saint-Martin
