Why Do We Like the 16th Arrondissement of Paris?
Known for being a chic, residential neighborhood full of embassies (it has 90 diplomatic representations, almost half of those present in France!), the 16th also offers lots of good reasons to visit…
Its art nouveau buildings
Architecture lovers will be thrilled by strolling through the Auteuil district where Hector Guimard, the grand master of Art Nouveau (to whom we owe the metro exits!), is remarkably famous. At 12 and 60 rue Jean de la Fontaine with its famous Castel Béranger and Hôtel Mezzara, at 8 and 10 rue Agar, at 2 de la villa Flore or at 122 avenue Mozart, you can see his magnificent creations with typical curves of the 1900s.
Its art deco buildings
This architectural movement that followed in the 1920s is not to be outdone since there are also beautiful houses made by Le Corbusier at 8 -10 square du Dr Blanche as well as his apartment-workshop at 24 rue Nungesser et Coli . Without forgetting the rue Mallet Stevens, which bears the name and presents geometric buildings designed by this famous contemporary architect, Le Corbusier.
Its many museums
The 16th arrondissement has no less than 20 museums! This cultural offering is very rich and varied: fashion at the Palais Galliera and the Yves Saint-Laurent museum, crystal at the Baccarat museum, Asian arts at the Guimet and Ennery museums, the largest collection of works by Claude Monet at the Marmottan museum, modern art at the Palais de Tokyo, sports at the Parc des Princes museum and even an original counterfeiting museum!
