This square was an early example of urban planning. Dating from 1612, during the reign of King Henry IV, this place housed many of the French nobility. Later, it was home to many distinguished citizens, among them Cardinal Richelieu and Victor Hugo. It's long been a center of Parisian social life.
It's an outstanding example of 17th century architecture, with its beautiful symmetry and open space in the center.
