When I went, the fountain wasn't working and had a barrier around it, so maybe I missed some of the magic. Otherwise, this is just a big space with shops around it. I didn't find this especially exciting.

Nice to walk there, take pictures, lots of restaurants and bars around. Nantes feels like Paris but not as crowded with tourists.

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.

I was lucky to have stayed around there and I had to walk past this plaza everyday. It is so pretty. Try to avoid Saturday mornings as they have demonstration all the time apparently.
