Belleville is a Paris neighbourhood with a strong identity: known to be an authentic neighbourhood of the people, where you will encounter people from all over the world: social mixing happens at every corner.

But Belleville is also known as anti-establishment and anti-authority. This reputation is linked to its history, to its past as a working class population and to specific events such as the revolutionary movements in 1848, which led to the end of the July Monarchy and most significantly to the tragic episode of the Commune in 1871. The Paris Commune was a government that briefly ruled Paris. It existed before the split between anarchists and socialists had taken place, and it is hailed by both groups as the first assumption of power by the working class. Let us discover together its treasures and absorb its warm atmosphere!
