So every French city has its City Hall, a beautifully ornamented building that stands out among all the others. The Lyonnaise version was built by Simon Maupin, and had its façade reformed in 1700 by J.H. Mansart.

Notice the "fountains" originating from the ground, 69 dancing jets of water that are lit up at night, in the beautiful square front of the building (Place des Terreaux).
