The oldest square in Paris
After the last chairs photo someone suggested in the comments that it had been taken on the Place des Vosges. I then realized I never showed you this magnificent square, constructed under Henri IV from 1605 to 1612 and located partly in the 3rd and party in the 4th arrondissement. The square consists of 36 (or 39, depending on sources) houses - each of them made of red bricks and white stones where you can now see a lot of art galleries and even the house of French writer Victor Hugo. If you come to Paris it's definitely a must see.
