  • The "Colette" square named after the woman of letters and journalist, Sidonie Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954) is located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, between the Louvre and the Royal Palace. From this place one enters the prestigious theatre of "La Comédie Française" founded in 1680, where all the great classics of French literature are played, from Molière (1622-1673) its godfather and instigator, to contemporary authors. The building that exists today, called "Richelieu Hall" with its columned gallery, dates from 1799, by the architect Victor Louis (1731-1800) in the style "Italian Theatre". On the east side of the square, you can have a drink on the terrace or have lunch in the prestigious café brewery "Le Nemours" in a classic style building. Next door, we pass under the porch, which gives access to the garden of the Royal Palace and the Buren Columns. Finally, the metro station "Louvre Palais Royal" was "Dressed" by the architect Jean Michel Othoniel (born in 1964) who created "The Kiosk of the Noctambules ". This amazing edicule is made of exterior structure in aluminum tubes forming two domes, dotted with colored murano glass balls (Venice, Italy). The two joined domes form an "Eight" as a sign of the Infinite. Created to celebrate the "Centenary of the Paris Metro" in 2000, this outing includes a part in "Ceramic Cave" before accessing the outside. The ceramic pays tribute to the first subway outings made in 1900, by Hector Guimard, in the style of "Art Nouveau".
