Geocache Description:


Square de l'Île de France

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Au XIVème siècle, le terrain est surnommé la Motte-aux-Papelards, en raison de nombreux gravats et détritus accumulés après la construction de la cathédrale Notre-Dame.

En 1687, un premier jardin, dont l'accès est réservé aux hommes, fait partie de l'enclos des Chanoinesde la cathédrale. Sous le Second Empire, en 1868, le préfet Haussmann y fait construire la morgue de la capitale. Le bâtiment a l'allure d'un petit temple grec. Cet espace vert surplombe le Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation, construit de 1954 à 1964, dont l'entrée s'effectue par un square. Un saule pleureur est dédié aux victimes du nazisme.

In the 14th century, the land was nicknamed La Motte-aux-Papelards, because of the numerous rubble and detritus accumulated after the construction of Notre-Dame Cathedral.

In 1687, a first garden, to which access was reserved for men, was part of the Canons' enclosure of the cathedral. During the Second Empire, in 1868, Prefect Haussmann had the capital's mortuary built there. The building looks like a small Greek temple. This green space overlooks the Memorial of the Martyrs of the Deportation, built between 1954 and 1964, which is entered via a square. A weeping willow tree is dedicated to the victims of Nazism.
