What to expect

Undertake a tour into the heart of the mysterious and unknown side of Paris. Your guide will tell you tales and legends about the darker side of Paris and share with you black magic myths that are hidden behind the "City of Lights"!

Your guided tour will begin at Place Maubert. Here you will follow in the steps of the Magician Maitre Albert de Cologne. Your tour will then take you in front of Notre-Dame, the famous cathedral that entails numerous fables and mysteries. You will pass by a narrow and authentic street where you will discover a dark past. A past in which much blood was spilled during the time of the middle ages and now fills the pages of history books today.

Facing Saint-Jacques Tower you will understand how reality beats fiction and in the heart of rue de la Ferronnerie you will learn how “le Vert Gallant” (Henry IV) died. Your tour will then continue to the former Holy Innocents’ Cemetery: long ago this cemetery was decorated with a lengthy magnificent fresco of macabre art. Your guided tour will end at the astrological and astronomical tower of the Black Queen. Legend has it that the magician at the service of Catherine de Medicis practiced black magic inside this tower. Some people say that his ghost still comes back to haunt the tower during stormy nights!
