Forum des Halles sits on the site of Les Halles, a popular public market for many centuries. During the 14th to 16th century it was also used as a place for public executions and punishments. The beheadings were preceded by the customary methods of torture and followed by the unrelenting mutilation of the bodies in the streets.
