Quai de la Tournelle

From Grands-Degrés Square to Sully bridge, this embankment lined with old houses offers a magnificent view over the chevet of Notre-Dame. Here you will find, depending on the mood of the day, the Museum of Public Care or the legendary lTour d'Argent restaurant: Henri IV, it is said, was surprised to discover a strange instrument there, the fork.
