In which French city would you find this famous landmark?
“Le Consulat” is a famous cafe/restaurant located on 18 Rue Norvins, 75018, Paris, France. Specifically, it is located in Montmartre, a large hill in the 18th arrondissement. It is 130 m (430 ft) high and gives its name to the surrounding district, part of the Right Bank in the northern section of the city. Montmartre is primarily known for its artistic history, the white-domed "Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur" on its summit, and as a nightclub district. The other church on the hill, "Saint Pierre de Montmartre", built in 1147, was the church of the prestigious Montmartre Abbey.
The establishment first opened its doors about four centuries ago. This tall, thin building spills into the cobblestone streets of Montmartre, attracting locals and tourists with its fresh baked goods, espresso, beer and wine. It’s the quintessential French café, complete with small round tables, white stone walls and colourful flowers hanging in the window.
Famous artists Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, Sisley, Toulouse-Lautrec and Monet were some of its patrons. Claude Monet and Victor Hugo had famous arguments with each other about their work.
Nearby, there is the “Musée de Montmartre”, “La Maison Rose” and, “Place du Tertre”, where artists exhibit -and sell- their works to the passers-by.
Le Consulat is open for trade daily.
