There is no respite for the investigators of 36, Quai des Orfèvres, located on the Ile de la Cité. In this district, among the oldest in Paris, crime is not a period affair, and each century has had its share of significant cases.

Whether they attack women, men, figures of power, or French icons; whether they act alone or in gangs, criminals have left their mark on each bank of the Seine, whose silent course carries away its share of secrets.

Your guide will help you discover the most celebrated legal cases, those which made the heart of Paris tremble, from the time of Philippe le Bel to the criminal police's most-wanted assassins of this century.

Alongside the Seine, slip into the shoes of a profiler and go with your guide in search of the crimes that have left their mark on Paris from yesterday up to the present day.
