Gastronomy, nature and freestone buildings... a motley neighborhood
Around the Place d'Alesia, Alésia neighborhood which is located in the 14th arrondissement of Paris, is particularly characterized by its many residential areas, but also by the Parc Montsouris, the Hôpital Sainte-Anne , and the underground catacombs located between the Place Denfert-Rochereau and the Rue Remy Dumoncel . Villas and houses with gardens are in line with a late urbanization, and multiple housing options make it a mainly residential area. Jordan Boulevard, near the Parc Montsouris, the Cité universitaire (university campus) welcomes each year more than 5000 residents.
The residential area of southern Paris

Whatever the purpose of your stay in Paris, don't leave the area without having explored the whole neighborhood of Alesia ... which means both above and below ground! the Parc Montsouris and the catacombs are the main attractions of Alesia. Spanning fifteen hectares, near Porte de Gentilly, first home to a lake, you'll find numerous walkways and a weather station. Covering an underground route of about two kilometers, seconds are the opportunity to discover one of the most unusual historical legacy of the capital while walking up over the galleries from Denfert-Rochereau to the Rue Remy Dumoncel.
