This picturesque square owes its name to former marshland covering that site.
Because of its central location it became, from the 9th century a choice spot of merchants
(the Town Hall was used as a warehouse and shelter).
The statue of Justice overlooking the fountain is a copy of the original (1585)
which can be found in the history museum.
This photo is not here alone by chance,
it's supposed to be part of a virtual visit of Lausanne.
If you have time
to keep on strolling over.
