Square of Symmetry Oct 05, 2010
Located in the 4th Arrondissement (Marais district), Place Royale built by Henry IV in 1609, and is considered to be Paris’ first square. The square of perfect symmetry is made up of 36 houses, with nine (9) houses on side. In 1800 Napoleon changed the name of the square from Place Royale, where duels were fought in the center of the square in the 17th Century and a three day tournament to celebrate the marriage of Louis XIII to Anne of Austria in 1615 to Place des Vosges.

While at the Place des Vosges don’t forget to visit the home where Victor Hugo lived from 1832 to 1848. Maison de Victor Hugo is located at 6 Place des Vosges (Hôtel de Rohan-Guéménée), Paris. The Victor Hugo Museum is open from 10am to 6pm, Tuesday through Sunday and admission is free.

Yes, I visited the Maison de Victor Hugo (Victor Hugo Museum) saw where he composed many famous works including Les Miserables. It was nice to see his pen and ink drawings, books and other mementos from his life. Thanks!
