The Monceau district is located on the border of the 17th and 8th arrondissements of Paris. At the corner of Parc Monceau is the Museum of Asian Arts, in the private mansion of Henri Cernuschi, who bequeathed his entire collection of works to the city of Paris in 1896. Not far away, the Museum Jacquemart-André was also the legacy of its owners Edouard André and Nellie Jacquemart. In rue Daru, we discover the Saint-Alexandre-Nevsky Orthodox Cathedral built-in 1861, whose Muscovite architecture is worth seeing. In this Byzantine setting, Picasso married his famous companion and dancer, Olga, with Jean Cocteau, Max Jacob, Guillaume Apollinaire as witnesses. The Monceau district is also known for the magnificent Parc Monceau, a refuge for walkers searching for peace and the pleasure of the passing moment.
