Photographer's Note

A friend recommended me to visit this square when I was looking for places in Paris I didn't know and I absolutely loved it. It reminded me of Place des Vosges (my favorite place in Paris). Unfortunately the day I visited it the weather was not very nice. It just had stopped raining when I got there.

"The Place Dauphine is a public square located near the western end of the Île de la Cité in the first arrondissement of Paris. It was 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."

Located near the metro stations: Pont Neuf or Cité and close to the Palais de Justice.
