Web camera in the southern part of Paris, which allows you to see in real time a large territory of the French capital. The area in which the webcam is installed is called Montparnasse. If we talk about the administrative division of the city, then this is the 15th arrondissement of Paris. Like many other webcams in Paris, this one is located on the left bank of the Seine, where the Eiffel Tower, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Pantheon, the Latin Quarter and other attractions are located. The main dominant area that we can see with this real-time webcam in Paris is the Montparnasse tower. It is located on the left side of the webcam and can not be confused with other buildings, because this is the first of the constructed and the only full-fledged skyscraper that is located in the city of Paris.
The Montparnasse Tower is a 210 meter tall skyscraper with a very laconic design. After the completion of the tower in 1972, the building was repeatedly criticized. Parisians did not like that the huge size and appearance does not harmonize with the neighboring buildings and generally with the typical urban development. That is why in 1974 the city authorities decided to ban the construction of skyscrapers in the city. And today all the real skyscrapers of Paris are located in the suburbs, for example, in the area of Defans. And the 57-storey Montparnasse tower is still the tallest building in Paris and the second tallest in the entire Paris region. Of course, not taken into account the technical installations such as pipes and antennas, including the Eiffel Tower, which can be seen by other live webcams Paris. By the way, the latter is almost 1.5 times higher than the tower of Montparnasse.
The area in which the Montparnasse tower is located is known for its bars, restaurants and museums. After the expulsion from Montmartre, it was in Montparnasse that many artists settled (among them Chagall, Picasso and Matisse). There is also the famous cemetery Montparnasse, where you can find the tombs of many famous people of France. Finally, it is in the Montparnasse area that there are huge and gloomy Parisian catacombs. An excellent view of the city opens from the observation platform, which is on the top floor of the Montparnasse tower. Parisians can joke that it is from this observation platform that the best view of the whole of Paris opens, where you can admire the city and not see the ugly dark tower (the Montparnasse tower is often included in the top ten most ugly buildings in the world).
