Place du Martroi

Place du Martroi is a pleasant car-free square with attractive fountains and a plethora of café terraces, and is the focal point of the town centre. It is home to the highly symbolic equestrian statue of Joan of Arc, La Pucelle d'Orléans, by Denis Foyatier (1793-1863). Remains of the Bannier gate are visible in the pedestrian walkway to the underground car park.
