Place Cachée was the wizarding section of Paris, France. It was accessed through a Magical Bronze Statue in the Montmartre district of the city.[2][3]


The statue to access Place Cachée was located at the juncture of Rue Richer and Rue Girardon. Both streets and Boulevard Voltaire were known to be part of Place Cachée and therefore the location of several wizarding shops and similar.


In 1927, the Circus Arcanus toured the Rue Girardon and displayed various spectacles.[2]

A beautiful bronze statue comes to life when approached by wizards and witches, lifting her robes to reveal entrance to Place Cachée. There are wonderful (...) in the (...) area of Montmartre, which are reminiscent of those featured in the film"
