Le Passe Muraille

Address: Place Marcel Aymé, 75018 Paris
Hours:  24/24
Cost: Free

Marcel Aymé (1902-1967) is a French novelist who wrote Le Passe Muraille (translated in English as The Man Who Walked through Walls). It's the story of a man, Dutilleul, who suddenly realizes that he can walk through walls and uses his gift to impress the girl whom he loves by stealing objects at the hotel she works at. He ends up loosing the girl and doing so, his gift. You can find a sculpture representing Marcel Aymé's character in Montmartre where he resided. The surrounding streets are just gorgeous with elegance and romanticism and will lead you to the Sacré Coeur area. But before you pass your way, don't forget to touch Dutilleul's hand. Who knows you might be able to catch his gift and go through walls. I tried and it did not work, too bad!
