This quaint cobbled stone square is filled not only by the Town Hall but with the wonderfully colored buildings, each with its own window box of geraniums and pastel colored shutters. The square is home to the Fountain of Justice, whose basin dates from 1557 making it the city's oldest. The original Statue of Justice was made in 1585 but is now replaced by a copy. Every Wednesday and Saturday morning, a market is held on all surrounding pedestrian streets where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables. The overall atmosphere of the square is very laid back, making it a good place to relax in the outdoor cafés and restaurants.
The Protestant Church was built from 1716-1719 on the ruins of a church from 1000 A.D.
It is virtually impossible to visit Lausanne without seeing this church, at least from the outside. Located right at the heart of Lausanne, St-François Church was established before the Reformation. After the building burnt down in the 1368 fire, the church was renovated to include an interesting combination of modern and traditional concepts. The church has automatic doors and a part of this monument has been renovated. Several concerts are held in the renovated part of the building. Historical information, concert schedules and services are available inside the church. Guided tours are conducted in this church that acquaints the visitors with the history of this place.
