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 :
The Ecouen chateau, 300 feet from the Way of St James
drawn by Baltard and described here
Porte St Denis by Blondel,
close to St Martin Gate shown here
There are many more major monuments on the way.
