Built in 1798, Passage du Caire is the oldest covered arcade in Paris. It takes its name from the Egyptian capital due to 3 statues in the image of the goddess Hathor, with cow ears, which decorate the entrance. The arcade is known for being the longest and narrowest in Paris. Business is non-stop under its large glass roof in the form of a fish bone. Situated in the Sentier district, the Passage du Caire is almost entirely devoted to ready-to-wear wholesalers. It's worth a visit for the architecture of the beautiful facades on the upper floor which maintain their original charm. Other additional entrances are available: Rue d’Alexandrie, Rue Saint-Denis and Rue du Caire.
