L’Ile de la Cité is an island located in the center of Paris near Notre-Dame in the 4th arrondissement on the Seine. It attracts tourists from around the world who see it as the quintessence of Paris. It is above all an exceptional architectural ensemble of the oldest district of Paris, bringing together on the same site the two jewels of medieval French art: the Sainte Chapelle and Notre Dame. The Ile de la Cité is also considered as the ancient cradle of Paris, formerly Lutece. Around 200 BC, while the great cities of Orient, Alexandria to Babylon, incarnate for millennia the tip of civilization, Gallic fishermen of the Parisis people plant their huts on the largest of the islands of the Seine. Fertile and rich in game and fish, making it easy to connect the two banks of the river, the island will quickly turn into a village, then in town: it is the birth of Lutece. On a sunny day, you can also go sunbathing at the square of the Ile de France, behind Notre Dame, which offers a beautiful view of Saint Louis Island. Specialized market flowers, birds, other small pets. Halfway between covered and open market, the flower market is made up of 1900s pavilions. It offers a large offer of flowers, plants and shrubs.
