August 2009 - Le Pavillon de l'Aurore

Le Pavillon de l'AuroreThe Pavillon de l’Aurore at the Parc de Sceaux is a noteworthy example of one of the few garden pavilions that have been preserved in France. Only a short train ride from Paris, a trip to see the pavilion and its remarkable painting by Charles Le Brun can be combined with an afternoon visit to the park and its château. We present an in-depth look at this exceptional 17th century edifice in this month’s Paris Insights.

We recently dined at a small neighborhood restaurant called Invitez-vous Chez Nous and feasted on delicious, hearty fare. Read our critique in this month’s Le Bon Goût and learn why you, too, will soon be asking, “What’s Julie cooking today?”

One of the high points of a visit to the Parc de Sceaux is La Grande Cascade, displaying mascarons created by Pierre Auguste Rodin for the Universal Exposition of 1878. We take a brief look at this magnificent cascade in this month’s Paris, Past and Present.
