Alesia Metro Station
Sometimes, when I walk down the street in Paris, my eyes get caught by very common things. Hence this metro sign at Alesia in the 14th arrondissement (Alesia is the name of a square and a street and it refers to a famous siege that took place in Burgundy in 52 BC where the Romans won over the Gallic (Les Gaulois). This sign is different from the usual ones and I have been unable to find out why... All I know is that it was opened in 1909.
