This sequence will be devoted to the city of Paris during the medieval period, and more particularly from the moment of its spectacular expansion in the eleventh century until the works of fortifications and embellishment during the reign of Charles V. Thus, the goal is to understand the evolution of urbanism and discover the main monuments of the city: centers of power, administration, places of worship and teaching, utilitarian buildings.
