Place Ducale

Recommended
The twin of the Place des Vosges in Paris, this vast square was designed by Clément Métezeau (1581-1652), whose brother Louis created the one in Paris. With its elegant gallery of arcades and 24 brick pavilions with slate roofs, it is one of the most beautiful Louis XIII-style squares in Europe. Most of the square is pedestrianised, making it particularly popular with visitors.
