Facing it is a small park, Square Georges Cain, open to public since 1931. It got its name from a former conservator of the nearby Carnavalet Museum, dedicated to the history of Paris (see previous post).
The square is perhaps especially notable for being an archaeological depository of the Carnavalet Museum, with some treasures from destroyed buildings and monuments, including from the disappeared Tuileiries Palace (see previous post 1, 2,3) and the original Town Hall (see previous posts).
In the middle of the square stands a statue, called “Ile de France”, by Maillol (see previous post).
Immediate neighbour to the Square is another calm and peaceful little park, Square Léopold Achille.
I wish you a nice weekend!
