The oldest planned square in Paris, Place des Vosges is a quiet spot surrounded by cafes and shops. Listen to the trickle of water from one of the four fountains while sitting at a bench. Henri IV built this perfect square 140 sq m (460 sq ft) from 1605 to 1612 to use as a royal pavilion for duels. Green lawns radiate out from its center. Expertly manicured lindens surround a formal plantation of mature linden trees called a bosquet, which provide a shady oasis.

  • A super cute park in Paris.. I spent some time here during the summer.. a lovely vibe with locals sunbathing, reading books or riding bikes… a lovely fountain adds some ambience with the sound of water splashing… surrounded by some houses, it’s a quintessentially Parisian
  • Special place. Victor Hugo's house is located there.
