This square has a number of restaurants, houses the tourist office and is the start/ end point for city bus tours so is a key place for anyone making a short stay in Lille

A pretty square where you can visit the tourist information centre, jump on the subway train or eat and drink in some pleasant cafe/restaurants. This is also a regular outdoor venue for music and other cultural events.

Buzzy area by Riheur Metro and just off Grand Place. The Tourist Office is situated here, main shopping streets and Old Lille nearby.
