The square was named for Henri-César de Castellane-Majastre, an aristocrat who donated the land for its construction in 1774.[1] A fountain with an obelisk used as a lavoir was built in the middle of the square in 1798.[1]

In 1911, the obelisk was relocated to Mazargues.[1] Meanwhile, Jules Cantini donated a new fountain, which was designed by sculptor André-Joseph Allar.[1][2] The fountain, completed in 1913, represents three Provençal rivers: the Durance, the Gardon, and the Rhône.[1]

The square, with the original obelisk, is mentioned by Joseph Conrad in his 1919 novel entitled The Arrow of Gold.[3]
