The site of the commandry of the knights of the Order of the Temple in the 13th century, the square du Temple became the scene of bloody repressions when the Templars were considered heretics.
Thankfully it’s a much more peaceful place today. The square du Temple is an English landscaped garden embellished with numerous exotic trees (American honey locust, goldenrain tree, Ginkgo Biloba) and some remarkable specimens (including an 18-metre tall Turkish hazel, and a 17-metre tall Japanese pagoda tree).
The wildlife in this large garden has never been so vibrant. Many different species of birds come to refresh themselves near the ornamental pool and waterfall made using rocks from the forest of Fontainebleau.
