Seen from quai Saint-Michel
Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche is considered the narrowest street in Paris. It is only 1.80m wide for the whole of its 29m length.
Built in 1540, it then ended on the bank of the river Seine.
Unfortunately, as of October 1, 2013, the cute Matisse-like street art pictured here has been painted over. However it is still one of the narrowest streets ever.
Origin of the name
There is the possibility of confusion with another word with the same spelling but a different accent which would translate as the sinning cat.
