Moulin de la Galette

Métro: Abbesses ( line 12 )
View from Rue Lepic, 75018 Paris

No, you're not in the Netherlands but in Paris! Le moulin de la galette is the only flour mill left in Paris which can still be used. Build in 1622, it is actually composed of two mills, the other one being hard to see from the street. In the late 1800, it was a popular spot for popular dances (including french cancan) as well as a tavern. Sadly, it is on a private property and you can't visit it so enjoy the view!
