In the centre of the square is the town’s oldest fountain, adorned with a statue representing justice. Close by, a clock presents the history of Vaud in animated scenes every hour from 9:00 to 19:00. On Wednesday and Saturday mornings this is the site of the country market, which also sets up shop in the neighbouring pedestrian streets. Every first Friday of the month, it plays host to a craft market. Typical cafes, boutiques and large, elegant shops complement what this high-class district, which is completely pedestrianised, has to offer.
At the junction of several pedestrian streets, this square is one of the town’s central locations. This is where you will find the 17th-century Town Hall, with its typically Vaudois roof, arcades and Renaissance façade decorated with two copper gargoyles in the form of dragons.
