Over and above the history, this vies for the most beautiful square in the world, or so I think. It is an every-time-must-visit place; every time and mostly first.

The symmetry, the colours, the balance of the four corner fountains, the splendid borders of pleached chestnuts, the discretion of the seats in their shade, the embrace of the open spaces, in fact the external embrace and warmth of the wonderful colonnades, and Louis XIII on his rearing mount tucked away in his own little grove hidden by new spring and untamed lushness.

There was a 'return to nature' installation.
