    The Place de la République, in the town centre, is the result of progressive development through a number of architectural and urban operations. It is to the south of the old Roman forum. In the Middle Ages, it was reduced to a narrow forecourt between Saint-Trophime Church and Sainte-Anne Church. Its current surface area was then occupied by several residential blocks. It was mainly after the construction of the town hall, in the 17th century, that the Place changed considerably.
