The fountain in the centre of the square was constructed between 1878 and 1885 by Gaspard André. In an eclectic style, it represents the creative genius of the city of Lyon and honours four artists: Philibert de l'Orme (1510-1570 architect), Gérard Audran (1640-1703 engraver), Guillaume Coustou (1677 – 1746 sculptor) and Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864 painter).
