Yes, they lived here and you should come and visit to see the lovely harmonious architecture, at least on 2 sides of this triangular square. Peaceful and pleasant.

We would have missed this if our Parisian friend had not pointed it out! A very quiet, very old square with lots of old world charm. Many eateries around the edges. Beautiful views, places to sit and relax, and usually a rousing game of petanque...More

Really nice, elegant and surprisingly peaceful given the fact it is located a few minutes from Notre Dame. Great place to have a picnic or just relax a bit.

Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
