This famous square is often the site of protests and rallies, primarily because of its proximity to the White House. Do not be surprised to find protestors on any given day, no matter what the weather. The square was named after the Marquis de Lafayette, the French general and a hero in the American Revolution. The park is beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Of special interest is a statue of Andrew Jackson riding his horse.
