Place des Vosges (Vosges square)

Located in the heart of the 4th arrondissement of Paris, the Place des Vosges was formerly known as Place Royale. The name was changed to Place des Vosges in thanks to the Vosges region, the first French region to pay taxes to the French Republic following the Revolution.

This beautiful square in the Marais is designed in pure and classic seventeenth century style, enhanced with Louis XIII fountains.

The Pavillion de la Reine (Queen's Pavilion), the Pavillon du Roi (King's Pavilion) and Victor Hugo's House are the three most significant houses on the Place des Vosges. Prestigious art galleries are installed under the arches of the Vivendi Gallery, which frames the Places des Vosges, and street musicians come here to perform inspired by the square's beauty.

Be sure to go through the secret door leading to the Hotel Sully's charming gardens during the day, converted into a museum of photography.
