Place Denfert-Rochereau is one of the mythical squares of the capital. Yet, if it is frequented by Parisians, who often meet around the place for the departure of major events, few know its history. At the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century, the square was cut in two by the Enclosure of the General Farmers which marked the limits of the city. If the purpose of this precinct was to delimit Paris, it was above all constructed with the power of the merchandise entering the city and, of course, the imposition of taxes on businesses from outside the city. Inside the capital. This taxation was carried out at the entrance to the compound: the grant wall, which was quickly renamed the "barrier d'enfer" by the Parisians who often saw prices rise because of the taxes imposed on merchants. The "barrier d'enfer" is still visible today even this construction dating from the end of the 18th century has never been destroyed. The two parts of the place were at last united in 1859 at the limit of the city, and extended to the south.
Another unknown element concerning this place is the origin of its name. General Denfert-Rochereau was a soldier of the late nineteenth century who illustrated the war of 1870 between France and the Prussians. This is also the reason why the Lion of Belfort occupies masterfully the center of the place. This statue, designed by the sculptor Bartholdi (who was also the creator of the Statue of Liberty), was bought by the city of Paris in 1879. This gigantic lion 4 meters high by 7 meters wide initiation was installed at the Buttes Chaumont (In the 19th arrondissement of Paris). Or, the inhabitants of the 14th arrondissement demand that the lion dominate Place Denfert in order to symbolize the French strength and courage in the Franco-Prussian conflict.
From this address you can easily reach the lively Rue Daguerre. You will then be able to stroll among the stalls and enjoy the products offered by the many traders who line the entire street. Shops are open every day except Sunday afternoon and Monday. You will undoubtedly appreciate the almost village atmosphere of this district of Paris where the inhabitants know each other. The anonymity of Paris does not take place here!
There are also many bistros, bars and restaurants around Place Denfert. We particularly recommend the pizzeria Chez Enzo which offers delicious pizzas and other Italian specialties. For a more Parisian break, visit the gourmet bistro Le Jeu de Quilles and fall under the spell of this establishment which propose fresh dishes cooked by the two chefs under the eyes of the guests. You can also enjoy the small delicatessen put at the disposal of the restaurant's guests. You will find many jars and other homemade preserves!
