Hôtel de Ville

Lonely Planet review

The Hôtel de Ville, fronting the place des Terreaux was built in 1655 but 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.
