Construction work is currently taking place near the sculpture "La Joute" located in the Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle. Consequently, the fountain will not be in service for an indeterminate period of time. As soon as the shows are resumed, we will upgrade the information on this page.


Thank you for your understanding.


Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle harbors the fountain-sculpture named "La Joute", by the Quebec artist Jean-Paul Riopelle. This monumental sculpture is mounted inside a circular basin, where a circle of fire appears on the surface of the water during the sculpture's performance, as the artist has originally envisioned.

Below, the schedule of the sculpture's nightly performances, which happen from mid-may to mid-october:

18h30 to 19h05
19h30 to 20h05
20h30 to 21h05
21h30 to 22h05
22h30 to 23h05
