L’Esplanade Charles de Gaulle

Place of Interest Always Open (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

In the extension of the Place de la Comédie, in the heart of the city, surrounded by four rows of plane trees since the middle of the 19th century, the 500-meter long Esplanade Charles de Gaulle is a shady promenade, brimming with outdoor restaurants and glaciers, on the edge of the historic center and the Fabre museum.

Beside the lawns with the flowery plantations the walk is refreshed by three fountains rebuilt in 1988 in the image of the original fountains of the 18th century.

A musical kiosk, designed by the architect Marcel Bernard, was erected here in 1925. This decoration, imagined in 1900 by Edouard André, creator of the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont in Paris, still attracts the visitor of today.
