Then, simply follow the directions to the next spot and the voice goes on again as the guide unveils a new incredible story.

On the itinerary, spot the beautiful church of Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, witness of many crimes in the last centuries: conspiracies, assassinations and poisoning during the time of the Kings of France. Saint Honoré street was very famous back until the French Revolution for public executions of criminals! Learn about the terrible lives of the public executioners.
