Postcard Place des Vosges
Immerse yourself in the history of Paris with this illustration of Lotza representing the famous Place des Vosges. With its elegant architecture and timeless charm, this square is one of the jewels of the City of Light.
The Place des Vosges was built in the early 17th century during the reign of King Henri IV. It was named in honor of the Vosges department, the first department to pay its taxes during the French Revolution. For centuries, the Place des Vosges has been a meeting place for artists, writers and intellectuals, such as Victor Hugo who had his home there.
The Place des Vosges is also surrounded by a historic district, the Marais, which houses medieval buildings and mansions dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. This area has known periods of great prosperity, but has also been the scene of many tragedies over the centuries, notably during the French Revolution.
Today, the Place des Vosges is a popular place for Parisians and tourists to stroll. Surrounded by cafes, restaurants and stores, it is a must-see meeting place for history and culture lovers.
