Place d'Armes

Point of interest

During the French Regime, this area was called Grande Place. It was the most popular meeting place for military parades and public speaking events. A gothic style fountain stands in the centre, above which you see the monument de la Foi commemorating the 300th anniversary of the arrival of the Recollet Fathers in 1615.
