Located in the heart of the picturesque Marais district, at the intersection of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, Place des Vosges was previously known as Place Royale. It acquired its present name only in 1800, after the Revolution, to thank the Vosges region for being the first to pay taxes to the French Republic. Made in the classical style of the 17th century, the 13,000 m² square des Vosges is surrounded by two-storey residential buildings, with their red brick and stone walls and blue slate roofs.
