Filled with a wild array of papier-mâché puppets, bits of Barbies, and the occasional skull, the storefront of El Clan Destino invites passersby to stop and stare for a while.

This place, located near the beautiful Parc de Belleville (the sunsets there are a great alternative to the busy ones at Montmartre), is the home of Diego Stirman, a self-proclaimed charlatan, magician, and marionetologist.

The tiny theater hosts puppet shows and street theater.
