The 4-star Hotel du Cadran is ideally located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. It is in the famous Cler street that travelers come to stay for a few days and enjoy the comfort of the spacious rooms. But do you know the story of Cler street ? Find out why it is so famous, and what are the places to visit nearby.


The history of Cler street

Located on the left bank, in the heart of the 7th arrondissement of Paris, Cler street stretches for 428 meters, in one of the most typical districts of the capital. Between the Dôme des Invalides and the Champ-de-Mars, this street, which used to be called rue Neuve-de-l’Eglise, or even rue de l’Eglise, now bears the name of Cler street, in homage to General Jean Joseph Gustave Cler, victor at the Battle of Alma.

This artery full of dynamism and effervescence has always been home to many bars, restaurants and shops, making it a nerve center of Paris 7. A

popular pedestrian street in the Gros Caillou district, Cler street is joined by various routes, including the well-known rue Grenelle. With its market-like appearance and friendly shopkeepers, Cler street is one of the essentials of Parisian life, between tradition and modernity.


Unmissable visits near Cler street

After having tasted the typically Parisian effervescence of Cler street, take the time to discover the greatest monuments nearby.

The Grand Palais Éphémère

Designed by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the Grand Palais Éphémère is located a stone’s throw from the Rodin Museum and the Eiffel Tower. This temporary building was built on the Champ-de-Mars, in order to offer visitors a cultural space during the closure of the Grand Palais. We then find a sports and cultural program , with numerous exhibitions, sports meetings, artistic fairs…

Opposite the Military School, this construction is a real architectural feat with ecological virtues, and will welcome, at the summer 2024, some Olympic Games events, such as wrestling, judo, wheelchair rugby and para-judo. The Grand Palais Éphémère will then be dismantled after the reopening of the Grand Palais in the fall of 2024, and its modular structure can then be used for other constructions.

The tomb of Napoleon 1st

Extend your Parisian walk to the Hôtel National des Invalides, which houses the Army Museum and the Dôme church. It is under the dome of the Invalides that you can observe the tomb of Emperor NapoleonI. Designed by the architect Louis Visconti, the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte is placed in a huge crypt of impressive dimensions, so that everyone can see the tomb without having to go to the crypt. Thus, the tomb is placed 6 meters deep, in a space 23 meters in diameter which has no roof.

We then discover a tomb 4 m long by 2 m wide, made of red quartzite and green granite, and containing 5 coffins, the last of which, in ebony, is in the name of Napoleon.

The space is elegantly decorated with white marble statues of women, mosaics and sculpture, in homage to the military prowess of the emperor.

The Esplanade des Invalides

Between the Hôtel National des Invalides and the Alexandre III bridge, the Esplanade des Invalides is one of the green spaces in Paris where it is pleasant to stroll. Offering a dazzling view of the Eiffel Tower and the major monuments of the district, the esplanade lined with elms and lime trees is a place conducive to walking, between the rosebushes blooming on the terraces and the bronze statues scattered on the course.
