Inspired by Place des Vosges
Place Ducale of Charleville-Mézières was designed by Clément Métezeau, whose brother Louis was the architect of Place des Vosges, in Paris. The rectangle located at the heart of the city is surrounded by 24 pavilions built in ocher stone from Dom-le-Mesnil, nearby, and red bricks. Their architecture of slate roofs and attic windows is inspired by Versailles. The city was constructed in 1606 following instructions from prince Charles of Gonzague and named after him.
