Rue la Fontaine

Metro : Michel-Ange Auteuil, Jasmin, or Eglise d'Auteuil.

rue la fontaine
Not to be confused as associated with the famous fabulist Jean de la Fontaine, this 16th century street more simply derived its name from a fountain that provided drinking water to Parisians across several centuries. The attraction of this street is its Art Nouveau atmosphere, a style most famously marked in Paris by the Metro entrances designed by Hector Guimard at the turn of the 19th century, but best described here by the beautiful Castel Béranger, located at number 14 and whose addition in 1898 assured the street’s reputation. Art Nouveau, with its stylised floral volutes had taken root. Today, at number 17, Café Antoine has managed to preserve several Art Nouveau tiled floors. Further along, la rue Agar cultivates the floral theme in the lettering of its street sign. Marcel Proust was born in this street at number 96.
