The writer Balzac was already enjoying developing some of his novel characters. More than a century later, the magic and fascination of the picturesque Sentier district is still as palpable as ever. The figures of literature are replaced by those of modern life, very real and in tune with the times. Until a few years ago, Sentier owed its reputation and attractiveness to the quality of the textile it produced. Due to globalization, many establishments have deserted the area. However, the neighbourhood is far from having said its last word. Businesses are still very much present and now coexist with the limitless ambitions of digital start-ups. Le Sentier is a unique district, capable of constantly renewing itself without leaving behind the richness of its past. Its most cherished emblem is the rue du Sentier, of course, the very street that gave its name to the entire neighbourhood. However, no street would be so representative of the life that is taking hold of the neighbourhood as Montorgueil Street. Very popular with Parisians and tourists alike, this street is full of restaurants, cafés and shops. It can boast of being one of the few pedestrian streets in Paris! Not far from the heavy atmosphere of the Grands Boulevards, Le Sentier still offers an appreciable haven of peace in the crazy French capital. This is what makes it so pleasant for a tourist stay.
