La reine Catherine de Médicis fait détruire le château.
Bordant l’hôtel Le Pelletier de Saint-Fargeau, le square abrite des statues provenant de la façade de l’Hôtel de Ville, dessiné par l’architecte italien Boccador et incendié par les Communards, en 1870. Son nom rend hommage à un ancien conseiller municipal de l’arrondissement.

Translation of the text on the sign:

Square Léopold-Achille

In the 15th century, a group of buildings made up the Hôtel des Tournelles, a vast royal estate, located north of the current Place des Vosges. King Henry II died there in 1559, following an injury received during a tournament.
Queen Catherine de Medici had the castle destroyed.
Bordering the Le Pelletier hotel in Saint-Fargeau, the square houses statues from the facade of the Town Hall, designed by the Italian architect Boccador and burned down by the Communards in 1870. Its name pays homage to a former municipal councilor of the district.
