Sinking House
📍 From Sacré-Cœur, France
The Sinking House, known locally in Paris as Maison Bouffay, is a quirky, distinctively angled building tucked away in the passage onto Rue Poché. This house was built in 1843 and it had a unique history that led it to become a hidden gem in the heart of the city. The Sinking House was originally built with wood and mortar. However, due to the nature of the material, the house began to settle into the ground and tilt at an angle, which lead to it quickly gaining its famous nickname. Now, it stands as an interesting piece of French architecture, complete with a carved stone facade and embellished windows to attract visitors. Visitors of Sinking House will have no shortage of unique photo opportunities, as the building’s signature slant makes it a one-of-a-kind attraction.
