    the lovely large square at the center of the Bastide St Louis is today called Place Carnot. It was originally much larger and over time has changed names and functions according to who was ruling France.

    At the center of the square is the large statue of Neptune,carved by the Italian sculptor Barata in 1767.

    Today there is a fruit and vegetable market. Around the square are lots of restaurants and cafes. The city organizes live performances on the podium.

    It was a nice sunny place to relax.

    Place Carnod in Lower Town

    Right in the middle of Lower Town is the Place Carnod, the town square. Lined with bars and restaurants, with tables spilling out into the square, it is the main hang out place in Lower Town. I found the area a little lacking, but there was a fountain.

    This the central square of the Bastide, with an 18th century Neptune fountain.. Admired by Balzac and Stendahl for its shade it is, apparently, still a popular place for local people to meet. Markets on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.
