HD photographs of the 12th century Wall of King Philippe Auguste II in Paris - Page 232

A part of Paris city life continues to be reminders of the past, both for its residents and the millions of tourists that visit the city every year, and even today there are rich remnants of the history of Paris, like a section of wall that has been preserved from the 12th century, and this particular section can be found on the Rue Clovis in the 5th Arrondissement.

12th Century Wall Of King Philippe Auguste II On Rue Clovis

And positioned on this wall there is a small plaque, which in English translates to Rest of the enclosure Philippe Auguste XII century, although a more literal translation that we would recognise from different facts is the Remains of the 12th century Wall of King Philippe Auguste II, as there are several small sections to be found within the city, with this being just one.

In fact, when you look back at French history, there have been several walls constructed in Paris in order to stop invasions, and this was one of those that was first started on the right bank and then extended to the left bank of the River Seine, which is where this one is to be found close to the famous tourist attraction of The Pantheon.
