About Fontaine Des Innocents, Paris

The Fountain is one of Paris’s lesser attractions, though it’s pretty enough. The surrounding area is urban and unflattering. Visitors usually give it a passing glance on their way to the more popular St. Eustache Church. Once also known as the Fountain of Nymphs, it was built as part of a series of passing fancies created to commemorate the event of King Henry II’s entry into Paris in 1549. It’s current name is derived from a mildly macabre past; it’s built on the site of an ancient graveyard – the Cemetery of Innocents, one dating from Roman times. The name of the cemetery comes from the nearby Church of the Innocents, in turn named after the biblical narrative, Herode’s Massacre of Innocents. The fountain was moved to it’s current location after the church and cemetery were moved to be replaced by a market.
