Jardin des Arènes de Montmartre
Located at the crossroads of Rue Gabrielle and Rue Chappe and a few steps away from the Sacré Coeur, the Jardin des Arènes de Montmartre offers a breathtaking view of the capital that will please all Paris lovers and as well as the most curious. These arenas were created in 1941 by the Montmartreese association Les Petits Poulbots, named after Francisque Poulbot’s drawings depicting the children of the neighbourhood. This association helped children in difficulty of Montmartre. These arenas are located in what used to be the heart of the agricultural district of Montmartre, where fruit trees used to grow. The arenas pay homage to Ancient History and are reminiscent of Greek amphitheatres. Although these arenas are relatively new, they are in no mean less exciting! The garden that hosts the Arenas of Montmartre is closed to the public most of the year and lucky are those who can find space in this open-air theatre to discover an artistic performance. Since the 1980s, many lyric festivals, jazz concerts and theatrical performances have brought the Arènes de Montmartre to life. Nestled between Parisian buildings, the perfectly located arenas offer a moment of bliss in the heart of the capital.
