Its history




The Marais is an historic part of Paris located in the third and fourth arrondissements of Paris, on the right bank of the Seine. It is now bounded on the west by the Rue Beaubourg, east by the Boulevard, north along the Rue de Bretagne and south by the Seine.e Marais est un quartier historique parisien situé dans une partie des IIIe et IVe arrondissements de Paris, sur la rive droite de la Seine. Il est aujourd'hui délimité à l'ouest par la rue Beaubourg, à l'est par le boulevard Beaumarchais, au nord par la rue de Bretagne et au sud par la Seine.





The Marais is a former swamp area occupied as of the twelfth century by religious orders (which the Templars), who set up institutions. In the early seventeenth century, following the construction of the Place des Vosges, this district, hitherto peripheral became the residence of the Parisian nobility. Many mansions are being built, many remain today. The mid-eighteenth century the area was deserted by the Paris elite in favor of the Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Faubourg Saint-Germain that offer more room. The French Revolution ended the hunt for wealthy owners. The area is now occupied by a population of artisans and a laborer who occupies the old hotels and shops built in the old way




The large-scale refurbishments of Paris of the nineteenth century little affect the neighborhood retains its narrow streets, but many quality buildings are gradually destroyed. In 1969, André Malraux launched a program to safeguard and preserve that continues today. The area is now preserved, with its beautiful buildings, frequented by tourists and wanted by the upper classes. Many museums are located. Several communities are formed over the years: Jews in the late nineteenth century, Chinese after World War I, and homosexuals.
