History of the building: An ancient convent built on the remains of the Temple of Paris, this building was the headquarters of the famed Templars, the religious order that had built its fame and fortune during the Crusades before falling in disgrace when the King of France felt the threat of their power and clout, back in the 14th century. The remains of the once huge compound were demolished over the centuries. However, for practical reasons, the main outer walls were incorporated in new buildings, such as this one, built backing on to the eastern wall (in the blue circle). It is now the house’s corridor wall: A 12th century wall! To see more of these remains, go to the Café Rouge, a few metres up rue de Picardie on nº 32. In the back of the beautiful main hall, you’ll see a wide round recess: It’s the watchtower you can see on the image below, just left of the circle.
