Overview

Lined with cafés and restaurants serving local cuisine, the city center's largest pedestrianized area is the ideal place in which to relax after shopping in some of its stylish boutiques. As evening falls, the square's popular cocktail bars, nightclubs and jazz cafés have the crowds coming. Inaugurated in 1988 and modeled on the Italian piazza by architect Charlie Bové, the square is located on the site of the former 17th-century Arsenal des Galères prison built during Louis XIV's reign.
