About Square Pablo Casals
The Square Pablo Casals was first laid out and then inaugurated in 1979, and was named after the renowned Spanish Catalan cellist and conductor Pablo Casals, who was internationally recognised and had played for royalty and different Presidents of the United States.
He was also one of the people that participated in founding the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, plus he produced many recordings including the Bach cello suites. And having been classed as one of the greatest cellists of all time, this square in Paris was named in his honour, just as many other places have been in other countries that Pablo Casals had an influence in.
Now within the square itself you can enjoy some shady areas from the apple and chestnut trees, plus there are also four Indian lilacs planted here along with many other species of plants, shrubs and trees.
Yet the main attraction for families, is the fact that there is not just a good sized childrens playground, but also a large sandpit and four table tennis tables, and you can relax on a park bench while you watch your children play happily.
