Built by king Henri the IVth (1607), around a square of trees: a miniaturised Place des Vosges.
Built in 1608, the old hospital is a nice testimony of the 17th architecture, as is "place des Vosges" in le Marais. Nice and quite garden in the "qualdrilatère". Perfect for pic-nic and rest !
Beautiful park right nearby, architecture is reminiscent of Place des Vosges, but without the crowds.
