Paris Cachée

This podcast travels around the city to reveal one lieu caché, a hidden place. Mysterious monuments, curious cafés, secret gardens or shops frozen in time; no matter what it is, it will always be hidden in plain sight, and always have an intriguing story to tell.

  • Episode 1: The Medici Column: In this first episode, you’ll discover the bewitching story behind the first column ever built in Paris. One virtually nobody knows about. A column built by a superstitious queen and shrouded in mystery, magic and the occult.
  • Episode 2: Passage de la Trinité: Paris is known for its beautiful passageways, but you probably have never heard of the secret life of one of the city’s oldest, yet very hidden, passageways in the 2nd arrondissement. From religious refuge to Paris’s first theatre, this tale is as winding as the passageway itself.
  • Episode 3: La Courtille Barbette: In this episode we travel to the 3rd arrondissement of Paris to visit the curious remains of a medieval enclave in the Marais. Tune in to discover its turbulent history, involving angry mobs, murder and adulterous royals.
  • Episode 4: Rue du Trésor: This episode takes us into the heart of the 4th arrondissement. We uncover the story behind the mysteriously named rue du Trésor, and investigate the incredible treasure hidden beneath it for centuries.
  • Episode 5: Collège de Beauvais: We venture to the 5th arrondissement of Paris to unearth the remains of the neighborhood’s Medieval colleges. Our tale also involves an infamous musketeer and libertine who would have the religious founder of this certain college rolling in its grave!
