This royal avenue lined with century-old plane trees crosses the former "Field of Mars", an open green meadow where the locals came to watch major events. Tucked away on the left is the court of justice, a modern glass-paned structure built in 1978 by Novarina of striking elegance. The immense prefecture built after the Annexation, is a fine example of Louis XIII Revival. The viewing table commands a wonderful view over the lake lined by majestic mountains.
