Paris Hotel Place des Vosges
History of Place des Vosges.
The Place des Vosges square was originally named Place Royale, then Place de Fédérés on 19th August, 1792; Place de de l'Indivisibilité, on 4th July, 1793; Place des Vosges on 26th Fructidor year VIII; Place Royale, on 27th April, 1814 ; Place des Vosges on 14th March, 1848, and Place Royale from 1852 to 1870. The north side of the garden is called Rue des Vosges. Origins of the name: Named in the year VIII because the Vosges department was the first to pay its taxes. Victor Hugo lived at number 6, Place des Vosges, for nearly 16 years.
This is one of the most beautiful squares in Paris, which, today, is home to many artists and art galleries.
Architecture of the Place des Vosges.
The square is presented as a homogenous unit, with its near square design, 127 by 140 meters, surrounded by 2-story residential buildings made out of red brick and white limestone quoins, and very steep blue slate roofs, with small-paned windows. Indeed, a royal edict of the 17th century, imposed the unity of the composition and the height of the buildings, with the exception of the Pavilion of the King, in the center of the south side (the highest of all) and the Pavilion of the Queen, on the opposite north side, which are were purposely built higher.
At the center of the Place des Vosges is the tree-lined Louis XIII square, with four fountains in the center of the lawns and an equestrian statue of Louis XIII. This statue by Jean-Pierre Cortot and Charles Dupaty was erected in 1825. The first statue dating from 1639 was destroyed during the French Revolution.
The four fountains, fed by the Ourcq canal, were also designed by Jean-Pierre Cortot.
