Spa, Le Pouhon

This is a much happier square. The scale is quite small, the buildings are excellent and of highly agreeable proportions. One might wish for the large "change" sign to go away.

The view down the street in the center is enticing - doesn't it make you want to walk down it?

The rounded building with the cupola houses one of the sources of spring water for which the town is famous.

Notice the odd gallery on the left-hand side of the building on the right. This completes the line of the buildings on that street, so there is nothing wrong with it, but I suspect that originally the street widened out at that point, which might have been better still, as it would have helped define the form of the better..
