The elm of Saint Gervais

The elm of Saint Gervais


A mid-sized elm grows in front of the Saint Gervais church, behind the hotel de ville. It was planted in 1936 as a replacement for the original tree. The tree seems to have been replaced several times, as it was first mentioned in 1235. Before the french revolution, it was a popular rendez-vous point. People used to say: "I'll see you at the elm" to set a rendez-vous here.
