This square, a masterpiece of classical architecture, dates back to the reign of Louis XIV.

The Vendôme Column and the facades of the houses surrounding it make it one of the most elegant squares. Today it is the Mecca of Paris’s luxury activities. A restoration project to eliminate parking and restore its original 18th century appearance was completed by the Ville de Paris in 1992.
