It's one of those initiatives that makes us love Paris so much, with its bohemian soul, completely artistic, a bit provocative: in the Belleville district, a collective of street artists are now offering an unusual treasure hunt, free but above all ephemeral. We explain you?

It's all happening around the Parc de Belleville, right in the heart of the 20th arrondissement, with its beautiful (and little-known) view of Paris. A collective of eight street artists has created eight works, to be hunted like a treasure hunt, in the streets surrounding the park, as explained on the Instagram account Mon Petit 20e.

This quest (or treasure hunt, it's as you prefer), is inspired by the TV series Alice in Bordeland. Your mission, if you accept it, will therefore be to look for eight figures from a card game (battle type), with four kings and four queens to unearth in the streets that approach Belleville Park. Once you've found one of these gigantic cards, all you have to do is scan the QR code located just below it with your phone. Each QR code reveals a snippet: at the end, you have enough to make up a quote for kings and another quote for queens, which you can send to the Instagram account @quete_roi_reine for a chance to win one of the original king or queen artworks, signed by one of the collective's artists (while supplies last).

On the account, you will also find the rules of the game, some clues to help you in your treasure hunt and, very important, the map of the route ! It's your turn to play!
