Built in 1540, it was originally an alleyway allowing residents to go as far as the banks of the Seine at the time when no quays were yet built. With a width of 1.8 m and a total length of 29 m, La Rue du Chat qui Pêche is still the narrowest street in Paris. More than an oddly-named street, it is also the scene of a grim, century-old legend.
