This is a lovely square, with beautiful black and gold gates, two large fountains and beautiful buildings: the opera house, museum, hotel de ville, tourist office, several cafes and a hotel. Definately worth a visit. Lovely when lit up after dark.

I have walked thru this monument on several occasions as a child, it was nice to see that it has remained in very good condition. Nice street with interesting shops and cafe's as you approach from the PS side.
