Quartier St-Séverin

A maze of medieval roads: it is one of the oldest quarters in Paris. Rue de la Rue de la Harpe is the ancient Gallic-Roman road from North to South; in rue de la Parcheminerie is where copyists and writers had their shops. Today, wine cellars and Greek restaurants have taken over rue Saint-Séverin and rue de la Huchette. And the bald singer? She still does her hair in the same way: The play by Eugène Ionesco has been playing at the Huchette theatre since 1957!
