CITY OF PARIS Square Roger-Priou-Valjean
This garden, redesigned in 2010, pays homage to Roger Priou-Valjean (1912-1999), former member of the resistance and adviser to Paris. At the corner of rue du Figuier and rue du Fauconnier, two fig trees perpetuate the memory of the fig tree uprooted in 1605 to facilitate the passage of the carousel of Queen Margot, first wife of Henri IV.
