Place de la Canourgue


"A Charming Square in All Seasons"

Just behind the busy Avenue Foch, this tranquil square was not always so calm. It was once the site where protestant canons fired on the Cathedral. The adjacent 18th-century Hôtel de Belleval was once the Hôtel de la Ville from 1816 to 1971. This site was also once the lodging of religious friars from Maguelone from which the Occitan word Canorga is derived. While passing beneath the leafy nettle trees of the garden, don't forget to admire the Unicorn fountain sculptured by Étienne d'Antoine.
