Located across the road from the Cluny Museum - (National Museum of the Middle Ages), is this (oasis of tranquillity) small garden/square dedicated to the politician and mathematician Paul Painleve. There is plenty of seating to enjoy the gardens and admire the: Monument; Puvis de Chavannes Statue; La Louvre Capitoline Statue; dedicated to Michel de Montaigne Fountain; Octave Greard in the shade of the trees that envelop the square.

Square Paul-Painlevé is located just outside the important Musée de Cluny. Originally created in 1900, the square was redesigned in 2000 to resemble a museum garden centred around the medieval theme. Opening hours are around 9am to 6 or 7pm depending no the season. This square is rather tiny. What makes it interesting are the numerous monuments placed upon its grounds. These include the She-wolf of Rome, the fountain monument to Octave Géard, a contemporary bust sculpture of Pierre Puvis de Chavannes as well as the Michel de Montaigne statue. You can conveniently browse Square Paul-Painlevé in 10-15 minutes before or after your visit to the museum. Then continue onward with other intended sightseeing.

This is a lovely little square near the Rue Mouffetard market. Great benches, historical statues and beautiful flowers. Extremely peaceful place to spend an hour or an afternoon. Check it out.

On my way to visit the Montagne Statue, I saw this little park - which is right behind the Montagne statue and in front of the medieval museum. It’s quite a lovely little park with statues, garden beds, bench seats and lawn, and seemed to be quite popular with people stopping it have a rest and enjoy the scenery of the park. If you’re in the area, it’s worth visiting.

This small, green sanctuary features Musee du Moyen Age (Cluny) as a backdrop and beckons by rue des Ecoles. I stumbled across the space while staying in a nearby hotel and stopped here daily during a March visit to Paris.It proved to be a calming spot to relax on a bench in nature after a hectic day. Even the noise from nearby traffic seemed to evaporate once I closed the gate. During my visits, I admired the still leaf-less trees, such as mulberry, elm and Chinese cedar and enjoyed a few spring flowers that had burst into bloom. Though the square first opened in 1900, it got a massive makeover in 2000. Landscape architects redesigned the area to incorporate the same medieval theme as the nearby museum gardens. Statues here include a bronze reproduction of Capolin Wolf breastfeeding Romulus and Remus. The original stands in Rome's Capitoline Museums. I usually stopped here in late afternoon when no one else was in the square. I think it would be a pleasant place to bring lunch or a snack or to rest with a cold drink (no alcohol allowed) when exploring the immediate area, which includes the Sorbonne. Dogs are prohibited, even on leashes. The square opens weekdays at 9:30 a.m. and at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Closing varies between 5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., depending on the time of year.
