    Relax in the Place du Parlement

    The Place du Parlement is a large square for walking and relaxing. In season the half-dozen restaurants have outdoor tables for dining. They range from simple and inexpensive to the finest seafood restaurant in town (See our Cez Philippe Restaurant Tip). At the center of the square is a fine fountain. Enclosing the nicely paved square are fine buildings in Louis XV style (mid 18C). Some have arcades at the ground floor and decorations on the upper rims of the main floor windows, called mascarones, fancifully decorated heads which grin down at the observer.

    The Square was built in 1754 and augments the landscape of luxurious commerce buildings, offset by a delightful fountain. By 1776 there was an addition of a royal market, later renamed The Liberty Market in honor of the French Revolution.
