Rights of Man Square (Place des droits de l'Homme) Evry
The town square, which is dull, is enlivened by its water features when they are in operation. Dancing fountains spring from paving and a finely sculpted green marble water channel surrounds the upper tier of the square. To the south of the square is Évry Cathedral - a twentieth century brick cathedral designed by Swiss architect Mario
Botta and completed in 1995. It is a Roman Catholic and the youngest
cathedral in France. The cathedral has a cylindrical shape and a ring
of 24 lime trees is planted round the top of the building (visible in
the satellite image on the location map below).
