Initially I thought this to be a plaza with artists and cafes like on the Rue du Mouffertard - I don't know why I got this idea - went there and saw Place des Vosges is a small park perfectly square shaped (140 meters x 140 meters).

As I read now about it, this is the oldest square in Paris - inaugurated in 1612. The buildings around the square are interesting as they were residence for some people in French history. At no.6 Victor Hugo lived between 1832-1848 and at no.21 Cardinal Richelieu from 1615-1627.
