We all know Paris bright side: large avenues, majestic monuments that seem to be exclusively religious, royal, imperial or republican.

The truth is more complex and an attentive study of the architecture of Paris reveals that the capital of France has actually a double nature, a bright side but also a dark side, or more exactly a secret side that have been occulted by official historians. Behind massive western architectural imprints of religious, royal, imperial and republican rule one can discover an Egyptian, pagan, and alchemist Paris.

If you want to meet the real Paris and true Parisians, throw away your Michelin guide or the Fodor guide that you borrow to your grand-father and go in the streets, look up in the sky, look down in dark corners.
