Place des Vosges is quintessential Parisian elegance. Worth a visit. If you have time for a meal or a glass of wine sitting in one of the bistros in the arcade all the better.

It looks like originally there was one fountain there -- instead of four. And as far as I can tell ... it didn't have a name.
