This walk follows the trail of the alchemists who left their lasting marks on numerous buildings and monuments in the very heart of the city.
Set off in the footsteps of the Parisian alchemists, the "gold makers" who, in their hidden laboratories bent over their manuscripts and stills, dedicated their lives to finding the secret to transmuting metals. This walk dwells mainly on Nicolas Flamel, the famous Parisian bourgeois, who reputedly solved the enigma of the philosopher's stone, an artefact that enabled the transformation of lead into gold and access to eternal life once diluted. Look out for certain representations of Our Lady and the last column of the palace of Catherine de Médicis built by her strange astrologer. Nicolas Flamel's house is undoubtedly the oldest dwelling in Paris.
