The rue Jouffroy d’Abbans of Paris!!!

Now in nostalgia lane, this is a new post with an old picture of a very walked street in Paris by yours truly. The rue Jouffroy d’Abbans has a couple mentioned in my blog but feel for the close personal touch of it to us needs a full post in my blog. Hope you enjoy the story and do get around it.

The street very dear to me as go there many times for our Spanish groceries in Paris is rue Jouffroy d’Abbans in the 17émé arrondissement of Paris. I have written a post on the Cap Hispania (see post) store at 23 rue Jouffroy d’Abbans.

This street starts at 1, boulevard Pereire and ends at 80, avenue de Wagram. The crossroads with boulevard Malesherbes and rue Ampère is called Place du Nicaragua. The crossroads with Avenue de Villiers and Rue Brémontier forms Place Monseigneur-Loutil. This street closest public transport is the metro line 3 Wagram. The name of the street honors the Marquis Claude de Jouffroy d’Abbans, French naval architect, engineer and industrialist, inventor of steamboats.

I always drive to it coming on Bd Malesherbes turning left on Jouffroy d’Abbans towards the store. I find parking always passing it on Rue Cardinet around the park Square de Batignolles, and sometimes on the street itself. I did took a walk passed this area into the train station Cardinet for the L trains and metro line 14 for info. Last train station before the Gare Saint Lazare train station. I have, also, written on the marché des Batignolles (see post) here and shop for cheeses and sausages a couple times, nice place parking underground.

Some of the remarkable spots on this street other than my fav Spanish grocery store! Are at No 62 the home where Phillippe Gille lived and died. His son, pianist Victor Gille, was also born there. Philippe Gille had two balconies installed, one of them was taken from the house of historical Marat, the other from that where Charlotte Corday stayed when she arrived in Paris. At No 66 lived in 1885 the painter Thérèse de Champ-Renaud.

There you go folks, another nice place to walk away from the tourist hordes in an off the beaten path spot in my eternal Paris. Hope you enjoy discovering the rue Jouffroy d’Abbans of Paris!

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
