What to expect

Come and discover Paris in a new light with this unique audio-guided podcast tour exploring Paris's architecture! You will be able to listen to the renowned architect and photographer Juan Jerez as he leads you around the treasures of the city and shows his favourite photo stops.

Wander through the 12th arrondissement and unveil its history, artisanal roots, its role in the 1789 Revolution, and the architectural jewels that define this neighborhood. You'll be able to stand in the very spots that saw the beginning of the historic revolution in France and explore the artisanal roots of Faubourg St Antoine. Here, you'll learn how this neighborhood inspired the French Revolution and Juan will give you a deeper insight to its architectural style.

Notice how the beautiful antiquity is preserved in the iconic Fountaine de Charonne as it blends with modern times. You'll wander around Haussmann's renovation of Paris and hear about the neighborhood's story and inspiration from Juan.

At Square Trousseau you can take a leisurely pause at this green oasis of unique beauty as the audio guide will teach you all there is to know about the square's history. Experience the brocantes, local cuisine at the market d'Aligre and the Place Beauvau and discover the routes behind sans-culotte and how it found political relevance in the revolution.
