ACUDB - Couvent des Filles du Calvaire

The convent, of which nothing now remains, was situated in the heart of the lively district on rue de Turenne. It was founded by Père Joseph in 1622. The Revolutionaries expelled the last remaining sisters and transformed the chapel into a theater dubbed "Le boudoir des muses". It was situated next to the famous boulevard du crime, named after the many melodramas that played in its theatres. The theater ran until 1807 before it was closed by the Empire.
