Place de la Carrière

Interesting
This long square was once used for equestrian exercises and dates back to the ducal period, but was redesigned by Héré to provide a link between the old and new towns. It is surrounded by lovely 18C private mansions and each corner is adorned with fountains, putti and vases. At each end, the gates designed by Jean Lamour are adorned with lantern brackets.
