18e Arrondissement

Right bank, Montmartre

Montmartre

The 18th is the most famous outer quartier of Paris, containing Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge, the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur, and the place du Tertre.

Painters

Utrillo was its native son, Renoir lived here, and Toulouse-Lautrec adopted the area as his own. Picasso painted some of his most famous works at the Bateau-Lavoir (Boat Washouse) on place Emile-Goudeau. Max Jacob, Matisse, and Braque were all frequent visitors.

Maché aux Puces de Clignancourt

Today, place Blanche is known for its prostitutes, and Montmartre is filled with honky-tonks, too many souvenir shops, and terrible restaurants. Go for the attractions and the mémoires. The city's most famous flea market, Maché aux Puces de Clignancourt, is another landmark
