Place Dauphine Tours

Place Dauphine is an iconic public square wedged between lavish townhouses on the western tip of Ile de la Cité in Paris. The square was the second project of the “royal squares program” instigated by Henri IV – the first one being what is now known as Place des Vosges – and was named after his son, soon-to-be Dauphin of France Louis XIII. To this day, it remains one of the most prestigious areas in the city.

The square’s – which is actually triangular in shape – westernmost corner connects to Pont Neuf, linking the right and left banks of the Seine River. Although the houses surrounding Place Dauphine were built in the early 1600s, only two have preserved their original features, i.e., the two located on either side of the narrow entrance leading to Pont Neuf. Nowadays, the oddly three-sided square is popular with both locals enjoying apéro and photographers searching for a quintessential Paris atmosphere.

Practical Info

Place Dauphine is located on Ile de la Cité in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. It can be reached on foot from Pont Neuf and Cité metro stations (serviced by lines 4 and 7), just a few hundred meters from Notre-Dame-de-Paris Cathedral. It is not advised to get to Place Dauphine by car as parking is scarce and complicated.
