Rue Montorgueil has been named after the thirteenth century because it led to a “little mount” on the present street of Beauregard. It leaves from the church of Saint-Eustache and goes up towards the Sentier. Many cafes, restaurants and grocery stores line it on both sides. You can still see the famous patisserie Stohrer installed since 1730. Babas with rum and famous flashes. The Rocher de Cancale where the protagonists of La Comédie humaine, as well as Balzac himself, were gathering. It is a busy pedestrian street very popular with young Parisians.
And it is a painting by Claude Monet The Rue Montorgueil in Paris. Feast of June 30, 1878, painted on the occasion of the celebration “peace and labor”, decreed that year by the government. It was not until 1880 that July 14 became National Day. It is preserved in the Musée d’Orsay.
