The Smallest Street in Paris

Rue du Chat qui Péche is considered the narrowest street in Paris at only 1.80m wide and 29m in length. It is in the 5th arrondissement, just near the Seine. I happened to find this miniature street just by chance while strolling around the Latin quarter with some friends.



The name Rue du Chat qui Péche means Street of the fishing cat and was named after a picture on a shop sign. It was built in 1540, and is a pedestrian only street. At the end of the small street is this cute graffiti of a cat being sheltered with an umbrella.


Just a cute little find in Paris that I though I would share!
