This is a wonderfully planned and executed square. It reminded me of Plaza Major in Madrid. If possible get a write up on the history and the people who lived here, a very interesting place to visit when in the neighbourhood. Hghly recommended

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
