A nice square in downtown, next to the riverside. Gathering place for markets, very nice statue, one attraction in Chinon.

On Thursday mornings, the square comes alive with a fabulous market featuring fresh meat and produce as well as clothing, textiles and baked goods. Well worth a special visit to Chinon.

This has loads of free parking apart from Wednesday evening when you have to vacate because there is a market there on Thursdays. The market is great with lots of food and clothing to buy.

We stayed in the center of town and had a lovely time. We walked for miles and the castle is great! We liked our stay in Chinon better than Paris!

Thought we'd walk along the river to have a look at the statue, but we were quite disappointed that it is lost in the middle of a car park. This is such a shame as it's a very impressive monument to France's most famous female.

This square in Chinon is essentially a medium-sized carpark. It does have loos which are not clean and which you may wish to mention to the Chinon Tourist Information Office if you go there for any other reason. On the edges of the carpark, there...More
