Landmarks, Tribute

Place de la République

Place de la République has become a rallying place to pay tribute to the Charlie Hebdo shootings. People also gathered there after the Paris attacks in November 2015, and more recently for the attack in Nice, on July 14 of this year.

After the Charlie Hebdo shooting, Place de la République was the major rallying point of the large Républican marches, the largest demonstrations held in France since the liberation in 1944.
