In behind the Clock tower and the Town Hall is the square, which looks more like a big parking lot, is a building covered in medallions of local celebrities. This building was once a Count's palace and then Auxerre's bailwick and presidial seat were held here until the Revolution. It then became the law courts in the 19th century.
In 1869 the museum of Auxerre and the library were established here an the buildings facade was decorated with medallions by a local artist in homage to local celebrities.
In this square looking back to the clock tower is an interesting view behind the timbered buildings back in the square looking like a rabbit warren of small medieval buildings on top of and beside each other. Tucked down on the bottom in the corner is a WC!
