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).
