In our second tour of the Marais we will take in the central part of the district just north of the rue Saint-Antoine.  Saint Paul-Saint Louis was the first Jesuit church of 17th century Paris, backed by Cardinal Richelieu and built in the new spirit of the Catholic Counter-reformation. Some of the greatest hotel particuliers of the Renaissance and Baroque eras are situated here: Lamoignon, Carnavalet, Sully as is also Paris’ first planned royal square, the place des Vosges built by King Henri IV in 1606-12. This was also at the beginning of the 20th century one of Paris’ major Jewish districts with its center at the rue des Rosiers. The orthodox synagogue on rue Pavee is by the great art nouveau architect Hector Guimard.
