About Square Michel Caldagues
The Square Michel Caldagues is a small garden that faces the Eglise Saint-Germain l’Auxerrois church and the mayor’s office for the 1st Arrondissement, which is laid out to grass along with different flowerbeds.
This little garden has railings all the way around it, so that it protects the area from people trampling over it, and it was only inaugurated on 22nd January 2014 by the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoe.
And the name chosen for this small square in Paris, is in honour of a former politician, Mayor of Paris for 17 years, and an officer of the Legion of Honour, Michel Caldagues, who died in 2012.
And as well as lots of different flowerbeds there are also small ornamental hedges, bushes and a few trees along one edge, plus there are some park benches just outside the railings of the Square Michel Caldagues, that are ideal for a spot of relaxation before venturing on to tourist attractions such as the famous Louvre Museum.
You can also get to see a modern stainless steel and glass memorial with two hands engraved on the top part followed by the enscription, which sits in this middle of a small flowerbed, plus there is also a plaque that mentions the fact that this gentleman was also a senator, etc as well.
