Many of the squares and public spaces are notable for their art, architecture or cultural interest. Not so Place Gambetta, which is simply a pleasant patch of greenery in the heart of town. I wouldn't recommend it as a site, necessarily, but a shady interlude...More

Now an "English garden," with serpentine paths and a pink theme in June, this square was part of the Marquis de Tourny's urban renewal plan in 1770, just in time to become the city's guillotine site during the Reign of Terror. Later renamed for politician...More

This is a square where a lot of bus has got there final station. The surrounding buildings are almost the same, vey nice. Some of the main streets lead to this always busy square. In the middle there is a little park.
