Created in 1923 on the site of former market gardens of a 13th century convent, this garden has free Wi-Fi and an enormous fig tree. Lying next to the Musée Carnavalet, it is named after Georges Caïn, painter, writer and curator of the museum from 1897-1914. The garden is full of treasures from the Carnavalet, including 'Le Rossignol de Heinz', created by Erik Samakh in 1990, which emits a nightingale's song when its internal climatic sensors detect the bird's favourite weather conditions.
