Cité of lovers
This romantic little enclave, modeled on a London square by the British architect Edward Cresy in 1830, is also known as the “cité des Trois-Frères”. Once through the first entrance, follow the tinkling of the fountain until you reach the second square courtyard, framed by elegant neoclassical facades and colonnades. Those lucky enough to live in this delightful spot included Alexandre Dumas the elder (at no. 2), George Sand (no. 5) et Frederic Chopin (no. 9).
