Adding character to the lovely place also are polychrome figures of notable personalities from around the town - particularly the ones made by local Auxerre artist Francois Brochet who has a display of works in the Auxerre Museum.
Notables such as the local writer Nicolas Restif de la Bretonne in 1806, where he began his professional career in the neighbourhood with the regions great printer Francois Fornier, whose statue sits together with his wife near the clock and bell tower.
And also one of France's famous 20 th century poetess Marie-Noel (1883-1967), who lived and worked in Auxerre. Her polychrome statue stands on the other side of the clock and bell tower outside the Town Hall/Hotel de Ville.
