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.

  • Beautiful place surrounded with beautiful buildings but there are still too many cars and ongoing renovation works.  more »
  • The square contains a large statue, some beautiful buildings and a museum. Unfortunately, most of the square was fenced off when I was visiting.  more »
