The Place des Vosges is the oldest square in Paris. The Place des Vosges was built by Henry IV from 1605 to 1612. It embodied the first European program of royal city planning. It was inaugurated in 1612 with a grand carrousel to celebrate the wedding of Louis XIII and Anne of Austria. It is the prototype of all the residential squares of European cities that were to come.
