    The Couvent Du Petit Picpus mentionned in the book is actually fictional. At the time, there were many covent rue de Picpus, the one you photographed (which is actually right by my house btw) is one of the two remaining, the other one being transformed into a private property. So Hugo got inspired by the street and invented one. The one in the book is the order of benedictines, and this one only used to be catholic. I think. That’s it
