Paris: Wall of Philippe Auguste

Section of the wall that enclosed medieval Paris

This section of the wall built by King Philippe Auguste, since integrated into the structure of a high school (Lycée Charlemagne), is one of the few remaining traces of medieval Paris. A big tip of the cap to 800 years of Parisians for keeping these pieces of history intact and in place.
