The fountain is in the Place de Carnot which is a great space with lots of cafes and restaurants and depending on the time of year there seems to be all sorts of events held in the Place.

This is in a wonderful location. Free and the surrounding area is just so calm and relaxing. You can't miss it if you are in the city centre. Well worth a photo.

We saw this beautiful fountain on our way from the station to the castle. It was early morning and very pleasant. We did not go out of our way to see it. It was nice to see it just as we were passing by.

The fountain is central to Place Carnot where you can always find a bar or restaurant to have a bite to eat or a drink in shade or sun.
