  Previous Place des Vosges [Place Royale], Paris

Place du Marché-Sainte-Catherine is a public square located in the centre of the old Paris, close to everything. This small square is named after market installed in 1784 on the site of the former convent Sainte-Catherine-du-val-des-écoliers.

  It is surrounded by tall buildings built in the late 18th century, forming a homogeneous space, with mulberry trees planted in the centre.

Virtually closed to car traffic, only one street is touching the space on the south side.

  Square is with plenty of benches, several restaurants with beautiful patios it serves both tourists and locals. Notice on the map bellow in the top right corner, park like space. That is one of most important urban squares in Paris, of course in our collection, that actually influenced many spaces around the world.
