The covered passages of Paris (Passages couverts de Paris) were a form of indoor shopping areas, built in the early 19th century on Paris’ Right Bank. In the 1850’s there were over 150 covered passages. Only a few dozen remain today.

Exploring these passages was a great rainy day activity when we were in Paris recently. Enjoy the pictures!
