In Kvadraturen you find the square Christiania torv, which is known for the fountain shaped like a hand pointing to the ground. This is where the Danish-Norwegian king Christian IV decided to rebuild the city after the big fire in 1624. He pointed to this spot and said: "The new town will lie here!"
