Paris Attractions Map of 3rd Arrondissement

The 3rd arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.

Situated on the right bank of the River Seine, it is the second smallest in area after the 3rd arrondissement. The arrondissement contains the northern, quieter part of the medieval district of Le Marais (while the 4th arrondissement contains Le Marais’ more lively southern part, notably including the gay district of Paris). The oldest surviving private house of Paris, built in 1407, is to be found in the 3rd arrondissement, along the rue de Montmorency.

A small but rapidly expanding Chinatown inhabited by immigrants from Wenzhou centers on the rue au Maire, near the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers housed in the medieval priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs.
