Grand Rond (Sculptures)

The Grand Rond (Grand Circle) or Boulingrin (Bowling Green) is a public garden southeast of the city center, built between 1752 and 1754. It has the form of a very large roundabout with four four aisles, the allées Jules Guesde, François Verdier, Paul-Sabatier and Frederic Mistral. This roundabout is so vast (4 hectares) that is transformed into an English garden in the nineteenth century.
