Just minutes from the Sacre Coeur this interesting art gallery is a great place to stop if you want to see something a bit different during your visit to Montmartre. It’s a gallery, bookshop and café all under one roof. The best time to visit Halle Saint Pierre is at weekends when it’s particularly lively and there are often special events on.
The art exhibitions tend to focus on contemporary art from across the globe, the current exhibition focuses on Italian artists. Make sure to leave time to check out the cute bookshop too, unfortunately most of the titles are only available in French but they also sell a cool line of unusual postcards.
However, much as I enjoy the exhibitions I have to admit the café is probably my favourite part of this spot! Bright and spacious it’s a really wonderful spot to while away a few hours with friends or alone. They do a good range of light snacks and also a fantastic selection of cakes for those with a sweet tooth!
P.S. You can go to the café without having to pay to visit an exhibition!
