Place des Cordeliers

This is where, in the presence of astonished notables, two paper manufacturers from Annonay, the Montgolfier brothers, took off in the first air balloon on 4 June 1783: one of humanity's greatest dreams became a reality. To the right of the tourist office is a commemorative plaque.
