The La Samaritaine, which is one of Paris’s iconic landmarks, is to be reborn following an ambitious makeover project. The famous department store, first opened in 1870, is situated between the Pont Neuf and the rue de Rivoli, close to the Louvre Museum. The 1st arrondissement (district) is the city’s luxury shop window, with some sought-after addresses.


The store’s Art Nouveau and Art Déco architecture has long been a must-see on the tourist trail. The buildings are classified as historic monuments. Known by Parisians affectionately as “la Sama”, the store was the biggest in Paris during its heyday. (MTI)
