CITY OF PARIS Promenade Richard Lenoir-Square Bréguet-Sabin
This square is one of the four gardens that make up the Richard-Lenoir promenade, built on a vault since Haussmann, whose recent developments have been designed to recall the existence of the Saint-Martin canal under the cobblestones. The square pays homage to the three generations of the Breguet family of engineers (from the 18th to the 20th century), and to Charles-Pierre dAngelenne de Saint-Sabin, first alderman of the City of Paris under Louis XVI.
