Bonaparte (rue) - Paris

Like many of the roads in this district, la Rue Bonaparte (Bonaparte Road) has become home to fashion shops. Laid down in the 16th Century, the road accommodated some very fine distinctive mansions of which some traces still remain today: for example, at numbers 19, 20 and 21. Number 7 is the former mansion of the Marquis of Persan; and at number 5 is the former hôtel Bessan in which the painter Manet was born. Derain lived in the attic room at number 13. Finally, at number 14, you will find the l'école des Beaux Arts (School of Fine Arts). It was constructed on the old convent of the Petits Augustins, which itself was built by Queen Margot in 1608.
