The greater part of the west side of the Place de l'Hotel de Ville is occupied by a building of the same name. Much of the south side of the Place is occupied by the post office, which earlier was the grain market. The Hotej houses on its main floor, the library of the Perce Collection, materials of the man who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1960.
No need to comment.

The Place de l'Hotel de Ville is situated in the old city centre, a busy city centre come to that!
The 16th Century Town Hall has a lovely courtyard and the lion head in the photo is one of the two that decorate the entrance doors.
The Place de l'Hôtel de Ville (City Hall Square) could be the very centre of the old town. There is a flower market every morning around a fountain from 1.759 (left of the pic).
Place de L’Hotel de Ville seemed like a happening place, with restaurants and plenty of seating, and we snapped this photo of a
fountain, a clock tower, and a tree.
