In a town as charming as Montmarte, there's no telling what you may miss by staying on the beaten path. There is a statue known as Le Passe-Muraille that honors the work of local author Marcel Aymé, who wrote a short story about a common man who discovers his unique powers to pass through solid walls. This sculpture features the bronze image of a man passing through an ordinary wall. The figure's left hand has been polished by the hands of tourists attempting to pull him free.
