The Ecluse des Récollets is one of nine double locks that make it possible for boats to navigate along the Canal Saint-Martin, built in 1825. Walkers can discover this lock as they stroll by the canal. Framed by the Grange aux Belles footbridge and the Bichat footbridge, it is located near the Square des Récollets and the Jardin Villemin. Close by, you can admire the facade of the Hôtel du Nord, made famous by the eponymous film directed by Marcel Carné and starring the actress Arletty.
