Rue des Francs-Bourgeois

Interesting
The name of this street comes from the occupants of almshouses founded here in 1334, who were exempt from tax due to their limited resources and known as "francs-bourgeois". In the courtyard of n° 8, admire the typical haberdasher's shop. A number of mansions are also worthy of note: Hôtel Carnavalet, the 16C Hôtel d'Albret (n° 31), Hôtel de Coulanges (nos 35-37) with its quiet rose garden, Hôtel de Sandreville (n° 26), and Hôtel d'Alméras (n° 30), whose gateway is adorned with a ram's head.
