Emily in Paris locations



Emily’s apartment on Place de l’Estrapade
The first season of Emily in Paris was the most watched romantic comedy show on Netflix in 2020 with 58 million households worldwide watching the show in its first 28 days. Not everyone loved it but it was a great escape from a long period of self isolation due to the pandemic and our inability to travel. The good news is that the second season of this series will be on air soon.*

Emily Cooper’s apartment is on the fifth floor. Chef Gabriel also lives in the same building.

Place de l’Estrapade
The square in front of Emily’s apartment is a few steps from the restaurant where Gabriel works as a chef. This is a nice and quiet neighborhood.

Gabriel’s Les Deux Compère Restaurant and the Boulangerie Moderne
The restaurant where Gabriel works is the Terra Nera in real life. The Boulangerie Moderne where Emily gets her croissant from is next door (it was closed when I passed by because it was Bastille Day).

Emily’s office
Emily is a marketing executive and she works at Savoir which is right next door to Galerie Patrick Fourtin on Place de Valois. The restaurant above is where Emily was invited to join the tight office gang after her Instagram post was acknowledged by the First Lady of France.

Jardin du Palais Royal
The Jardin du Palais Royal is where Emily met Mindy. It’s a short walk from her office at Place de Valois.

Panthéon 
This is the Pantheon where Emily chatted with her boyfriend by phone. Formerly the Church of Saint Genèvieve, the patron saint of Paris, the Panthéon was transformed into a patriotic monument to the great men and women of France after the French Revolution. Victor Hugo, Voltaire, Rousseau, Zola, Pierre and Marie Curie, Dumas are buried here, among others.

Palais Garnier
Emily went to watch Swan Lake at the Palais Garnier and to see Pierre Cadault, the couturier/client of Savoir.

L’Atelier des Lumières
Gabriel, his girlfriend Camille and Emily went to see the Van Gogh Immersive Art Exhibition at l’Atelier des Lumières on 38 Rue Saint Maur. (The image above is from the Klimt/Schiele/Hundertwasser Immersive Art Exhibition.)

Montmartre
Emily and Mindy celebrate the evening in Montmartre before she deletes her Instagram account.

“ I like Paris, but I’m not really sure Paris likes me.” Emily

Filipino Struggles in History - Carlos "Botong" Francisco

In 1968, Antonio Villegas (then Mayor of Manila), commissioned Carlos "Botong" Francisco to paint the history of Manila for Manila City Hall. The series of large scale paintings was called  Kasaysayan ng Maynila  (History of Manila).  The paintings deteriorated over time and no attempt was made to preserve these historical canvases until 2013 when Mayor Amado Lim sent them to the National Museum for extensive restoration. Four years later, in 2017, Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada and the Manila City Council signed an agreement with the National Museum to leave the paintings at the museum so they may reach a larger audience in exchange for museum grade reproductions to replace the originals. Kasaysayan ng Maynila was later renamed Filipino Struggles in History and is now on display at the Senate Hall of the National Museum . Carlos "Botong" Francisco died in March 1969, a few months after completing the paintings. He is one of the first Filipino modernists and

The Art of Carlos Botong Francisco - Progress of Medicine in the Philippines

Pre-Colonial Period Pag-unlad ng Panggagamot sa Pilipinas (The Progress of Medicine in the Philippines) is a group of four large-scale paintings depicting healing practices in the Philippines from pre-colonial times to the modern period. Carlos Botong Francisco was commissioned in 1953 by  Dr. Agerico Sison who was then the director of Philippine General Hospital (PGH) together with   Dr. Eduardo Quisumbing of the National Museum, Dr. Florentino Herrera, Jr. and Dr. Constantino Manahan. These oil on canvas paintings measure 2.92 meters in height and 2.76 meters in width (9.71 ft x 8.92 ft) and were displayed at the main entrance hall of PGH for over five decades. Owing to its location, the artworks were in a state of "severe deterioration" at the beginning of the 21st century from exposure to heat, humidity, dirt, dust, smoke, insect stains, grime, termites and an oxidized synthetic resin used in an earlier restoration. These canvases were restored three times, the last

8 Heritage Houses of Iloilo

Lizares Mansion The province of Iloilo on the island of Panay has a rich trove of heritage houses, left over from the sugar industry boom in the 19th century. Iloilo also had the largest port in the Philippines at that time which facilitated the export of sugar to foreign shores and deposited money in the hands of the sugar barons. The barons dropped their earnings into the acquisition of properties in Negros and the construction of beautiful homes in Iloilo, many of which are located in the vicinity of the Jaro Cathedral. The Lizares Mansion was built in 1937 by Don Emiliano Lizares for his wife, Concepcion Gamboa and five children. The family fled to safety when World War II broke out and the house was occupied by the Japanese military. The family returned to the house after the war but left once again after the demise of Don Emiliano. It was sold to the Dominican order in the 1960s and was converted in 1978 to a private school, Angelicum School. The mansion now houses the
