Pierre Louÿs wrote a short story that this park was a setting for, and he referenced that cupola/temple. When I was in Paris summer 1983, I insisted my friend and I walk over there to see the park I’d read about. It’s spacious, it’s charming, the view is extravagant, and they are right about the graffiti (even 36 years ago.) Then we walked over the Sacre Coeur.
