The "Great Way"

 

When you walk through Paris and its region you discover places that belong to the French history and at the same time to the history of Europe.

Two examples taken from a catalogue of old books on sale at Ormara, a bookshop in Versailles :

 

 CHATEAU D ECOUEN 010

 The Ecouen chateau, 300 feet from the Way of St James

drawn by Baltard and described here 


 PORTE ST DENIS BLONDEL

 

Porte St Denis by Blondel,

close to St Martin Gate shown here

 

There are many more major monuments on the way.
