The Hôtel de Ville, fronting the place des Terreaux was built in 1655 but was given its present ornate façade in 1702. When Daniel Buren’s polka-dot ‘forest’ of 69 granite fountains (embedded in the ground across much of the square) are on, join the kids in a mad dash as the water dances up, down, disappears for a second and gushes back again.
