A 2-minute walk from Promenade des Anglais, on the edge of Vieux Nice, is the Place Masséna, a large black and white-tiled plaza. It is described a square but is more of a semi-circle. It is host to a water fountain, named 'Fontaine du Soleil' (The Sun Fountain), which celebrates the Greek god, Apollo. Interestingly, on their way back from war in Marseille, Greek soldiers came across Nice in 350BC, and made it their home. The name Nice derives from their original name for the city, Nikaia, after the Greek goddess of victory, Nice. Place Masséna looks very traditionally Mediterranean, as it is surrounded by terracotta buildings with large French windows, each with blue shutters. The square is lined with palm trees.
