Stations to admire on line 10
Cluny La Sorbonne station is worth paying special attention. Just look up and admire the ceiling decorated with mosaics designed by Jean Bazaine. These are signatures of Sorbonne students who became famous writers, poets, philosophers, and scientists. You can recognize the signatures of Arthur Rimbaud, Georges Sand, Gustave Courbet, and many others.
At Mirabeau station, it’s not the decor that strikes you, but the layout of the platforms. One of the two platforms is elevated, which, once inside the subway, gives a certain feeling of flight. This layout is due to the fact that the subway was forced to move closer to the foundations of the Auteuil church.
