  • The statue of Louis 13 was erected in The Vosges Square in 1825 to replace the destroyed, 1639 creation. It looks very good!

  • It is the statue that is in the center of the perhaps most beautiful square in Paris, the Place des Vosges. This equestrian statue of Louis XIII (1601-1643) was placed here in 1829, replacing an ancient bronze that had been installed in 1639, as can be read in the inscription at the base of this monument. Made in marble is a work that resulted from the collaboration between Charles Dupaty (1771-1825) and Jean-Pierre Cortot (1787-1843).

  • One of the most interesting things to see at Place des Vosges in the Le Marais is the equestrian statue of King Louis XIII. The original was created and erected here in 1639. However it was destroyed during the French Revolution near the end of the 18th century. A new marble statue was created by Jean-Pierre Corto and installed here in 1829. What you will see is a depiction of the king in the manner of a Roman emperor riding through a crowd of loyal subjects. He is wearing a cloak and laurel wreath upon his head. His left hand is bent and rests near his chest while his right arm is extended. The horse appears to ride steadily forward. It is a nice equestrian statue and worth paying a few minutes to enjoy if you plan to visit Place de Vosges and enjoy seeing monuments and statues during your travels.
  • Nice park just out side Victor Hugos house
