It's a nice statue but nothing historical there. You should go to the mill "Moulin de la galette" more far, witness of "Belle Epoque"

A man coming out of a wall, it is indeed a curious art piece and the object of many photographers. In the middle of one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods, perfect for a walking tour.

This is the second time I visited this statue and was not disappointed. My daughter was with me and got a kick out of having me video her running to do a high five. We still are giggling over the video. If you are in...More

Fun street art in a wonderful neighborhood. Come and take a photo, but do a long walk through this area hopefully with some guide to the interesting buildings along the way. History and architecture.

This sculpture is a tribute to a short story by Marcel Ayme, after whom the plaza is named. In fact his face is on the larger-than-life sculpture, by his friend Jean Marais. A civil servant in Montmartre has the incredible ability to traverse walls due...More

I guess it would be fun for kids to see but it's nothing more than another statue in a wall. I would not do the detour just for that again.

Montmartre is a treasure trove of non touristy things to do and this is one of them. You can be sure that there won't be a crowd here although finding this place without a map is almost impossible.

I specifically went to visit it while I was in Paris, as it was an interesting art - a fictitious man who could walk through wall. I spent a good 5-10 minutes taking photo with the man, holding his left hand and hope to help...More

Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
