Square of the Saint-Augustin church


In 1914, a square was built in front of the Saint-Augustin church according to the plans of the architect Georges Madeline, on the site of the customs building. Two perpendicular motorized tracks cross it and delimit three pieces of grass, crisscrossed by pedestrian walkways. Each room is decorated with flower beds, trees and shrubs of local species, to which are added in 1969 non-native plantations, including poplars from Italy and black pines from Austria.
