Went to see as part of a huge self-guided walking tour - it's in a small, average square - wouldn't go out of the way to see.

Have a coffee, tea, hot cocoa or whatever your heart desires and enjoy the great place, watch people go by, catch some rays, listen to the water in the fountain and take in the city life

We came across the fountain while we were strolling through the nearby shopping area. It is a quiet retreat from shopping.

A Nice Place to make a stop for a cup of coffee or just for a look. The houses around the square are magnificent, so is the fountain. Very different compared to the huge Bellecour square.

The peninsula between the two rivers is home to several beautiful squares, streets and lots of lovely buildings. It is so lively with some pedestrian streets. This is an elegant 16th century square.
