My favourite place in Paris is the Place des Vosges, Iocated in the district of Le Marais. Until the 13th century, the neighbourhood was a marsh, hence its name. It then became a farmland until in the 17th century, when it became a residential area.
The Place des Vosges is the oldest square in the city. I love it for its symmetrical shape and for the red colour of the brick used in its construction. In spring, the square seems to be reborn with its grove and four fountains. On weekends, it is especially full of life and colour.
Both the square and the neighbourhood are full of trendy shops, restaurants and cafes. It is the biggest LGBTQ+ district of the city. There is no shortage of museums, such as the Carnavalet Museum dedicated to the history of Paris, the House of Victor Hugo and the Picasso Museum.
I am passionate about tea. In this neighbourhood, you can find three of my favourite tea shops:
