I have always loved this wonderful square - must be one of the most beautiful and complete architecturally in Europe. First came here 27 years ago and drank many a coffee while my French then girlfriend was at university lectures! Nice to come back again!

Impressive night light show! We just happened to just pass through the square after dinner (at 10:45 pm) as the light show was starting with great light projections (accompanied by audio). Very creative projections on the beautiful buildings surrounding the square.
