The Square d'Orléans (also known as the cité des Trois-Frères), is a residential square in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, at 80, rue Taitbout.

The square was designed by the English architect Edward Cresy, and built in 1829 on land that had originally belonged to the family of the musician Daniel Auber. The original entry to the square was at 36, rue Saint-Lazare. The name 'Square d'Orléans' was probably a tribute to Louis Philippe of the Orléans family, who became King of France in 1830. ('Trois-Frères', the alternative name for the square, is the name of a former part of rue Taitbout).

The facades of the interior courtyard are decorated by porches with Ionic half-pillars, in a style that is analogous to that of the terraces of Regent's Park, London, (e.g. Cumberland Terrace), designed by John Nash in the 1820s.
The Square became a fashionable residence in which many celebrities of the July monarchy period took apartments, including Frédéric Chopin, George Sand, Marie Taglioni, Alexandre Dumas and Charles-Valentin Alkan.

  • Μια ιστορική τοποθεσία κοντά στο κέντρο της πόλης του Παρισιού
  • Square publica dentro de un edificio privado en la Nouvelle Athénes. Sitio histórico donde han vivido numerosos personajes, como Chopin, Georges Sans, Alexander Dumas. Lugar encantador como la mayor parte del barrio con sus fuente y sus dos magnolios, sus arriates de flores tan bien cuidados siempre y sus fachadas neoclásicas de estilo inglés.
