The Rue de la République opens onto a triangular square, in the center of which stands a fountain, surrounded by handsome maple trees. The Olivier family donated the three-tiered fountain, built in the 19th Century by Dargassies, to the town after the terrible flood of 1875, which left the Saint-Cyprien area in ruins. On the opposite side of the street, a commemorative plate shows how high the water rose during the flood. Take a look at number 25 of the Rue de la République. Gaston Virebent, a famous potter, once lived in this splendid building.
