In context : A short overview of the Marais
(From : Carnavalet Museum). Take Sévigné street again, southbound this time, then turn left into de Jarente street. You will arrive at du Marché-Sainte-Catherine square through a small passageway.
At the junction of Caron, d'Ormesson and de Jarente streets, not far from subway station Saint-Paul on line 1, this small square got its name from an old market which opened in 1784 at the spot of the Sainte-Catherine-du-Val-des-Écoliers covent.
Today, it is surrounded by large late XVIIIth century buildings, with a center divider strip decorated with mulberry trees from China.
With its cobblestones surface, the nearly always pedestrian square is a relaxing place you can enjoy by sitting at one of its several restaurants outside tables.
