I love sitting here on a warm afternoon. Also good for a drink before dinner on a warm evening. Lots of cafes on this square, a lively spot in the Marais.

We already had dinner in three different restaurants here and always had an excellent evening and a very good meal each time. The last time in july we could sit outside on a warm evening on this lively place. Highly recommended.

Tree lined medium sized square that is iconic of Paris. Wonderful to walk under the trees on a warm day and gives you a real Paris feel.

When my guide mention that Marais is a trendy district, he wasn’t kidding. As we sat here at Place Sainte-Catherine for a 5 mins break, the number of swanky Parisians, no doubt heading out to the cafes and bistros that lined this square. It’s off...More

The small and quiet square owes its name to the market that was established here in 1784 at the site of the former convent of Saint Catherine. This charming place offers a feeling of a long gone, old Paris with its nice restaurants and cafes...More

Place Ste. Catherine is a must when visiting Paris. It's a little square and makes you feel like you're in the Paris of yesteryear. It's old, quaint and really feels Parisian. There are a couple of restauants, and if you sit down, relax and read...More
