CITY OF PARIS Paris - Gardens - Square Laurent-Prache
Laurent Praches, former municipal councilor of the City of Paris (1856-1919), gave his name to this garden. His effigy can be found on a medallion by the painter, sculptor and engraver François De Herain (1877-1962).
The garden borders the Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, the construction of which was decided in the 6th century by the Merovingian king Childebert, to accommodate his burial.
