Marais Square

This square is lined with modern arched buildings and embellished with a fountain. At the corner of Nationale Street, there is an inscription which recalls the bestowing of the Villefranche Charter in 1260. Above, a ceramic decoration, representing Pierre II of Bourbon and Anne of Beaujeu, is inspired from the famous triptych of the master of Moulins.
