Parc des Buttes-Chaumont / Promenade Plantée in Paris

The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont is a public park opened in 1867 and located in northeast Paris. Its most famous feature is the Temple de la Sibylle, inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, Italy, and perched at the top of a cliff above the waters of an artificial lake. After the park, I walked back to the Gare de Lyon train station, first going through Place de la Nation, then taking the Promenade Plantée, a linear park cutting through Paris from Vincennes to Bastille.
