Description
A view of the waterway between Ile St. Louis and mainland Paris. The ile is one of two natural islands within the city limits, located on the Seine. Once used for grazing cattle, it was transformed into an urban area under the reigns of King Henri the IV and Louis the XIII, eventually transforming into a coveted upper-class district and now one of the best preserved 17th century areas in Paris.
