Place de la Sinn, Ribeauvillé, Alsace, France
This beautiful little square is lined with fine houses such as the Sun Inn (Auberge du Soleil) which was once the meeting place of the local musicians and the Sheep Inn (Auberge du Mouton), an old post house. In the middle of the square stands the fountain built by native André Friedrich in 1862 and which personifies the town of Ribeauvillé, its agriculture and its industry. In the past, the fountain was used as the town gauge (zinnen in Alsatian dialect) hence the name of the square (Sinn).
