La rue des Francs-Bourgeois


Metro : Saint-Paul. 4eme arrondissement.
Francs-Bourgeois's street is one of the longer and the most interesting of le Marais. Starting from BEAUBOURG (rue Rambuteau), it is a today  a trendy street extremely appreciated for all the fashion stores.  Note that this street is opened on sunday. So, many people come to brunch and walk there at the end of the week.  Impossible to miss it if you visit le Marais. We can still discover several hotels particuliers, (ancient private mansions), from  past centuries : Hôtel Carnavalet, Lamoignon, Sandreville, d'Albret, d'Alméras, Poussepin, de Coulanges, Hérouet, de Jaucourt, de Fontenay, de Breteuil. Hotel Carnavalet houses the museum of the history of Paris. Yesteryear, this street was called :  rue des Poulies. But, in 1415, a so-called le Mazurier offered to the grand Prieur of France, a huge private mansion with 24 bedrooms to receive 48 poor people. These people was so poor they didnt pay the taxes of the city and were called : francs-bourgeois.  That means the origin of the street's name.
