The square René-Viviani

Local name: La square René-Viviani

Rene Viviani Square is a small public park located near the Gothic church of Saint Julian. Among the carefully tended trees and shrubs there are wooden benches and flower beds are growing. The oldest, deliberately planted tree in Paris, black locust from 1601, grows in the park.

The square was marked out at the beginning of the 20th century. Earlier, it housed the buildings of the oldest gothic hospital in Paris. The remains of a basilica from the 6th century were also discovered during the archeological site.

The square has an irregular shape. In its central part there is a contemporary fountain with a sculpture depicting Saint Julian. It is surrounded by carefully trimmed trees and shrubs with benches underneath.
