When you are visiting Paris, make sure you have some time to visit this charming spot of the city. It is said to be the prettiest square, nestled right in the heart of the city. It’s most unique fact is, though it is called square, it is actually triangular in shape. This fact probably has been the reason behind its huge popularity. According to history, Henri IV built this square in 1607 to pay a tribute to his son. The best part of this square is that the surrounding architectural designs haven’t changed since its foundation. Walk down the grey cobblestone path of the square to admire these architectural designs. 

  • The entry is free.

  • You can visit the square any time of the day.

  • One word - Beautiful. One of the best places to visit in Paris. The evening is the best time to visit this place. The overall atmosphere is amazing

  • Initiated by Henry IV in 1607, the second of his projects for public squares in Paris, the first being the Place Royale (now the Place des Vosges). He named it for his son, the Dauphin of France and future Louis XIII, who had been born in 1601. From the "square", actually triangular in shape, one can access the middle of the Pont Neuf, a bridge which connects the left and right banks of the Seine by passing over the Île de la Cité. A street called, since 1948, Rue Henri-Robert, forty metres long, connects the Place Dauphine and the bridge. Where they meet, there are two other named places, the Place du Pont Neuf and the Square du Vert Galent.

  • A lovely, quiet place on the island. Fringed by café bars. A little oasis near the Pont Neuf.

  • This is the most charming place in Paris
