The square is named after Egyptian actress Dalida, who rose to fame as a world-class singer in France. She made her debut in Egypt and became a movie star, then came to France and settled in Montmartre. Dalida has performed about 2,000 songs in 10 languages, including French, Italian, German, Spanish and Greek, and has made tremendous contributions to the development of world music.



Au Lapin Agile bar is a place of artistic interest in the Montmartre district and is named after the artist Andrey Gill's 1875 painting of the bar: "a rabbit that jumps out of the pan". Montmartre is known as the artists' cradle before fame. Icons such as Picasso and Modigliani were frequent visitors before rising to fame.



The "Rose House" was once the residence of the famous painter Utrillo and was later converted into a restaurant. The pink walls are its recognizable feature. We recommend that you try the french onion soup if you ever eat here.



In the middle of the 19th century, the Montmartre Museum is where Van Gogh, Utrillo, Renoir, and others worked together. It was one of the art centers of Montmartre.
