"Monumental Fountain"

The Fontaine du Palmier located in the Place du Châtelet is a large circular pool topped by a column. It is decorated with bands of bronze and four statues at the bottom of the column sculpted by Louis-Simon Boizot, and the lower basin by Gabriel Davioud. Originally built to provide fresh drinking water, this fountain was considered as the largest fountain to be built during Napolean's reign. The fountain has been designated as historic monument since 1952.
