First built in 18th century and the fountain was added in 19th century but rebuilt in bronze after the war. The square is surrounded by high end stores and a lovely place to visit.

Worth a few minutes just looking at the new art installations (If still there) and admiring the buildings which are so nice. A very nice space in the middle of the city.

That's the real central place of Nantes or at least so it looks to a tourist like me. The name is well deserved. Good to have a walk through here.
