The Cloister of St Merry

Location: Just off the Place Georges Pompidou

Metro stop: Hôtel de Ville

Notes: It was here, in the tangle of alleys and medieval streets surrounding the 16th-century church of Saint-Merry, that the real revolt of 1832 was centered. Hugo was particularly inspired by the honor and idealism of Charles Jeanne, head of the insurgents.
