Buttes-Chaumont-Belleville’s reputation for resisting Parisian assimilation lends it an unconventionally-French feel. Historically known as a neighborhood for new immigrants, African and Asian populations contribute to its renowned culinary culture. Artists also call this northeastern Paris neighborhood home; their presence is evidenced by the murals and graffiti that cover its elegantly weathered apartment complexes. Buttes-Chaumont-Belleville’s kinetic energy enlivens its clangorous streets, while its enchanting green space provides the perfect outlet for nature-seeking spirits.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
