Not a very touristic place, but nice neighbourhood. There are a lot of shops around, as well as boulangeries and restaurants
I thought taking the Metro to this stop would somehow avoid all the steps. WRONG! :) There are a lot of steps, and when I finally made it to street level, I was at my target heart rate.
