CHAPTER FORTY-EIGHT – Place Dauphine is a public square located near the western end of the Île de la Cité in the first arrondissement of Paris. The square was initiated by Henry IV in 1607. He named Place Dauphin for his son, the Dauphin of France and future Louis XIII, who had been born in 1601. From the “square”, actually triangular in shape, one can access the middle of the Pont Neuf, a bridge which connects the left and right banks of the Seine by passing over the Île de la Cité. A street called, since 1948, Rue Henri-Robert, forty meters long, connects the Place Dauphine and the bridge. Where they meet, there are two other named places, the Place du Pont Neuf and the Square du Vert Galent. Le Caveau du Palais, with a retro setting on the beautiful Place Dauphine, is a very Parisian place where the fashionable customers take over the large terrace during the summer period. CHAPTER FIFTY-TWO – Notre-Dame de Paris, French for “Our Lady of Paris”, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture. Charlemagne et ses Leudes – Bronze equestrian statue of Charlemagne and two of his leudes (Olivier and Roland with his sword Durendal). Sculpted by Charles Rochet. CHAPTER FIFTY-FOUR – Hôtel Le Bristol is a five star hotel located in Paris, France, in the heart of the fashion design, and art district.
