People do not need a travel guide to tell them about the amazing architecture on display throughout Paris. As they begin their driving tour of France by cruising The City of Light, they can admire everything from the Eiffel Tower to the Notre Dame Cathedral.
However, Paris is also home to a few architectural attractions that may not make it onto postcards, but definitely deserve a visit. For instance, in the Latin Quarter, travelers will find the narrowest building in Paris.
Space in large cities is known to be limited, but this building takes cramped quarters to a whole other level. The slender structure is about 10 meters in height and 1 meter wide. The slim building is very simple in design, as it features one door, window and room. It was built to fill the space between neighboring residences and served as the home of French novelist Abbe Prevost.
Another unique building that travelers can visit in Paris is the Pagode, a Japanese-style pagoda that stands in the center of the city. Today, this structure serves as an independent movie house.
