Fontaine Molière

Fontaine Molière is located in the small but beautiful Place Mireille in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. It was built to honor the French playwright Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known by his stage name Molière, who wrote many famous comedies, tragedies, ballets and more. This was the first official commemoration of someone who wasn’t a prominent military figure in France.

I love passing by the Fontaine Molière and the Place Mireille because it’s such a beautiful little triangle! One of my favorite restaurants is nearby, too: Ellsworth. You can also pop into the Palais Royal just next door, too.
