Place Napoléon

A square was needed in the middle of the chequerboard designed by the emperor's military engineers. This was created so that 20 000 soldiers could assemble there. Neo-Classical buildings surround the huge esplanade, which has recently been redone and pedestrianised for the most part; in the centre Napoleon I can be seen prancing on a bronze horse.
