  • Created in 1954, this very well maintained and tranquil "square" is located at the Porte d'Auteuil, at the beginning of the Avenue du Général Sarrail and runs along the Serres d'Auteuil garden. You will discover an almond tree, a black pine from Austria and a White Poplar, not to mention all the floral decorations. This place pays homage to the poets.

  • This square is located near the door of Auteuil, avenue of the General Sarrail. It was created in 1954, on the initiative of Pascal Bonetti, then president of the society of French poets. It has beautiful areas planted with trees as a pine black of Austria, a White Poplar, etc of the statues of well-known poets are scattered in the garden and surprise, looking at the ground we see many plates engraved with quotations of french poets, Villon, Ronsard, Racine, Boileau, Hugo, Verlaine, etc. under the shade, we discover so over his walk, a statue of Frédéric Mistral recognizable to his cape and hat with wide edges, by Marius Rémondot, a bust of Théophile Ga uthier by Eugène Dejean, under a chestnut tree, a naked woman while lying stone from Joachim Gasquet, in 1928, a beautiful bust bronze to Alexandre Pouchkine, under a silver Linden, a bust in bronze of Victor Hugo, etc. This square is quiet and has a small children's play area located on the side. Large lawns under the shade, allow to rest, a drinking water fountain is available to visitors as well as toilets. I spent some time to read or reread excerpts of poems of my favorite authors, it rejuvenates. This square is accessible through the "Door of Auteuil" line no. 10 subway station.
