Rene Viviani Square in France, Paris resort

Rating: 8,4/10 (2003 votes)
Rene Viviani Square – a municipal resting place for Parisians and guests of the city, one of the most picturesque places in Paris.

There is a square in the northwestern part of the 5th municipal district of Paris. The borders of the square coincide with the borders of three neighboring districts: 1st, 4th and 6th.

The square is named after Rene Viviani – an outstanding politician in France in the 19th century, one of the founders of the so-called independent socialism. This area was open for public access only in 1928, three years after Rene's death.

Until the XX century, it was a very controversial territory, since it belonged at different times to different people , including one monastic order, who bought this piece of land from the Paris municipality. Until 1909, one of the hospitals in Paris was located here, and after, before the First World War, the land was given for archaeological excavations.

The main attraction of the square is Robinia – the same age as King Louis XIV – the oldest tree in France. It is still growing, but its age does not allow it to stand level, so the trunk is supported by a stone curbstone made especially for the park.

In the park itself you can see many sculptural compositions dedicated to outstanding personalities of France and folk tales. The number of sculptures is growing every year.
