Jardin Catherine Labouré: an enchanting and unknown garden in a enchanting part of Paris, rue de Babylone in the 7th

Jardin-Catherine-Labour%C3%A9

The garden is named after a young 19th-century nun to whom the Virgin Mary was said to have appeared as she tended the kitchen garden.

It is an attractive spot in summer for an outing with friends or family, to sunbathe on the lawns or to walk along the cross-shaped outline showing where the convent once stood. http://en.parisinfo.com/paris-museum-monument/71138/Jardin-Catherine-Labour%C3%A9 29 rue de Babylone…
