  • The Equestrian statue of Louis XIII is central to the Place des Vosges... A statue Appeared in those days when the square was called the Royal. And the appearance of the equestrian monarch was promoted by one of the famous residents of the Royal Square, whose name was Arman Jean du Plessis, Duke de Richelieu. However, in 150 years the revolutionary Parisians overpaid the king, but then came to the senses and again the king, restoring the statue on the habitual place for us in 1825 year...

  • 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
