Place Dauphine, Paris

(4.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Henry IV ordered the creation of Place Dauphine, named for his son, the Dauphin of France and future Louis XIII, who was born in 1601. One of the earliest city-planning projects of Henri IV, this sits on a site created from part of the western garden of the walled Palais de la Cité (Capetian kings lived there before the Louvre was built). In 1792, during the Revolution, Place Dauphine became Place Thionville, a name it retained until 1814. Today, you can find hotels, restaurants, and a peaceful park here. Many enjoy the spot for its views of Pont Neuf and the Île de la Cité. Put Place Dauphine into our Paris tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This area is required to visit because of this square Cafe prepares the most delicious coffee in Paris

  • Indicated by the orientation of the equestrian statue of Henri IV on the tip of the Ile de la Cité, crossed a "gap" between the buildings leads to an unexpected and charming square of triangular shape, with artistic workshops, benches, trees notary offices, immersed in the tranquillity of an urban oasis. Discovery sifting tourist guides, is a "treat".

  • How is it that if near our Lady we find this almost empty plot? That is nice! No vendors has the nuts, not people who push us in every sense. A lot of benches, games for children. It is stopped to eat our sandwich. To start tour seine side, to see our Lady on l other flank. This side of the street is very quiet too.

  • Intimate, cozy, quiet and yet alive. I love this little square where young Parisians gather to play pétanque, drink a glass of wine and flirt with admirable style.
  • Perfect place to relax between site seeing. So much history here. Wish we could've stayed longer..
  • One of the prettiest squares of Paris, especially during sunny days. Quiet and bordered with nice, old buildings, as well as tasty restaurants.
  • A quiet place in a middle of the very busy, we all want to protect and conserve from the crowd ^^
  • Nice place to have a drink in a quiet area
