“Hugo, les Mis and beauty.”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

One of the prettiest squares in Paris. A portico wraps around the square, and it's a lovely shopping area for a rainy afternoon (art galleries and lovely bistros). On the southwestern corner, you will find Victor Hugo's house (open for visits) and if you are lucky enough to get there on a sunny day, there is no better spot for Parisian watching. :)

“Beautiful but only if you have time”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A beautiful square near Carnavalet, but you should only go there if you have time to see the most remarkable places of Paris.

“Cracking Place to Get a Coffee”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Beautiful surroundings in which to give your feet a rest between the Bastille and Notre Dame and grab a coffee. The park is very peaceful and the view all around is very pleasing. When we return to Paris, we'll definitely be making another pit stop here.

“Pretty square and gardens”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

A pleasant walk through the arcades around the square. One of Paris' hidden gems. The boutiques were pricey and there were also some interesting galleries too. We passed through on our way to Musee Carnavalet
