Travel Guide

Travel to the Ile Saint Louis in Paris with Aimee Leduc

The Île Saint-Louis is one of two natural islands in the Seine river, in Paris.

It is connected to the rest of Paris by four bridges to both banks of the river and to the Île de la Cité by the Pont Saint-Louis. IT might be at the centre of a mystery in this novel but it was formerly used for the grazing of market cattle and stocking wood in the ‘olden days’.

One of France’s first examples of urban planning, it was mapped and built from end to end during the 17th-century reigns of Henri IV and Louis XIII. Given the themes of public town planning in the book, it’s interesting to note that Christophe Marie, general builder for Public Works was in charge of creating this island.

The island project, an architectural revolution, as it was the first time that such an urban plan had been used in Paris. Over 200 years later, urban planning was implemented citywide.
