Jardin Rosiers Joseph Migneret

I had such a great fun today. As it was nice and warm, I decided to go and rest in the garden "Jardin Rosiers-Joseph-Migneret", in the Marais.

The lovely garden is located between Hôtel de Coulanges, where Mme de Sévigné stayed, and Hôtel d'Albre. The park pays tribute to Joseph Migneret (1888-1949). who used to be headteacher of the nearby "Hospitalières Saint-Gervais" school. Thanks to his bravery, Mr. Migneret, Righteous Among the Nations, saved tens of jewish children from deportation during the Second World War.

With its little orchard, vegetable plot, fig tree, chestnut tree this garden and the vestige of one of the 77 towers from Philippe Auguste surrounding wall  is different from the other parks. It's very pleasant to sit on a bench or on the grass with a falafael bought a few meters away at the famous "As du Fallafel".

Entrance: either 10 rue des Rosiers or 35-37 rue des Francs-Bourgeois
