  • This place is very discreet because it is located between the buildings of character of the Marais, near place des Vosges and Saint Antoine Street. Access to from Saint Antoine Street and take the right Caron, shortly before the "Saint Paul" from the Bastille metro station. Initially it bore the name of "Saint Catherine market place" that has existed since 1784, with buildings of the same era. Initially the name comes from what existed on this space from the 13 th century, a convent of Saint Catherine of the Val of schoolchildren, located outside the walls of the enclosure of Philippe Auguste, which dates from the same period. The convent demolished in 1780, the architect Louis Caron, who gave his name to the street leading to it, produces the free space left. This square-shaped square, paved and pedestrian, is planted with white mulberry trees of China, giving pleasant shadows when taking a break on the bench. "Tourist", rather expensive restaurants and very average quality, are around the square and deploy their terrace in a friendly and devoid of car frame. This place is especially lively evening at l a beautiful season.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
