Marina of Arsenal

It was formerly the port of goods that became since 1983 a marina. Between xvie and xixe centuries, in the location of the pond, raises itself an arsenal which gave him his name. With the increase of the traffic of barges on the Saint-Martin canal during the xixe century and a big part of the xxe century, the pond of the Arsenal became an important commercial harbor of Paris. Of a length of 600 m, the pond facilitates the load and the unloading of the goods, essentially the wine, the wheat and the wood.
