The square and garden were created and named in memory of a French resistance Fighter and Paris councillor, yet two fig trees are planted where there was once another back in the 1600s when the garden was first laid out.
About the Jardin Roger Priou Valjean
Sometimes known as the Jardin Roger Priou Valjean, you will find on the Plaque at the entrance gate that has been produced by the Mayor of Paris, the name reads Square Roger-Priou-Valjean.
This garden and square was named after the French Resistance Fighter and Paris Councillor Roger Priou Valjean, and is located by the corner of Rue du Figuier and the Rue du Fauconnier, which is where you will find two fig trees. However, these recall the time when there was once one large fig tree, yet this was destroyed, as it hindered the passage of the carriage that used to transport Marguerite de Valois, or Queen Margot as she was known.
And as well as these fig trees, you can see almost a wild style of vegetation with other types of trees and bushes including plum, lime and plane trees plus a basic childrens playground that includes a slide and some park benches to relax on.
