The vampires of Paris

While the Carpathian Mountains are considered to be the source of vampire legends, Paris has often been the setting of their stories. Among the most known of these are Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles", recounting the tale of, Lestat de Lioncourt, a noble Frenchman transformed into a vampire in the XVIII century. His famous "Theatre des Vampires" was known to be a hotbed of vampire activity in Paris.
