The Golden Age of the Marais district began in 1605 when Henry IV decided to build what is now the Place des Vosges, (formerly the Place Royale). The area then became the residence of the Parisian nobility who built many mansions which remain standing to this day.
Today, located in part of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements of Paris (the Right Bank or Rive Droite), the heart of the Marais district is bounded by the Rue des Archives, the Rue de Rivoli, the Rue des Francs Bourgeois and the Rue Saint Antoine.
Over time the Marais district has evolved while retaining its unique character: it is as much the historic Jewish quarter of Paris as it is the district of beautiful mansions, made unmissable by the narrow streets which have become pedestrianized over time. Today it is the heart of Paris’ gay scene.
