The square has a large statue of Joan of Arc on horseback. It also offers a fountain, and a merry-go-round. Several restaurants and bars circle the square, and the square is a lovely place to relax and enjoy a drink.

The centre of Orléans has many pedestrian-only streets that are a delight to get lost in. Imagine this is how Paris would be looking like before Haussman cut the large avenues in the 19rh century.
