Create an itinerary including Place des Terreaux
From the center of Place des Terreaux you’ll see a 360-degree view of stunning 17th, 18th, and 19th century architecture. The square is flanked by the Musee dex Beaux Arts and the Hotel de Ville. During the French Revolution, this square was the site of over 80 beheadings by guillotine. However, the modern square is a peaceful, popular meeting place.

  • The square has a fine fountain, the city hall and the fine arts museum, all stunning achievements in their own right. It is large. A night time visit is also rewarding.

  • This is a nice square with a number of beautiful buildings as well as a beautifully sculpted fountain. It was also the meeting point for walking tours. Recommended to visit at night as well.
