Place de la Palud

Lausanne - Vaud (Switzerland)

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.

Wonderfully put together, this one!
Great light, overall contrast and color tones! Great treatment.
