The Place Dauphine is a triangular square located close to the west side of the Île de la Cité island in the the first arrondissement of Paris. The square is linked through the Rue Henri-Robert street to the oldest bridge in Pairs called the Pont Neuf, which passes over the island connecting the two banks of the Seine.
The Place Dauphine was laid out in 1609 as part of one of Henri IV earliest city-planning projects. It was built on the site of three little muddy islands on the Seine. The square was named after the Dauphin of France, the future Louis XIII.
It is a quiet and peaceful place with large red brick buildings, grey cobblestone walks, and a beautiful park with trees and benches. In the square, you will find numerous cafes, wine bars, restaurants, and a hotel. From the square you can see the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre complex, and the Pont Des Arts.
