Plenty of bars around the square to people watch from. It is very attractive and was rebuilt extremely well following the WW1 destruction of the place. Why are beers so expensive though? 7 € for a 500 ml glass?.!!!!!

Arrived here on a Saturday morning when the market was in full swing. Came back after visiting a number of sites for lunch and the market was gone and the square very well cleaned. Interesting to see the square in both modes.

Dominated by the rebuilt Belfry this large, attractive square is decorated by large drapes featuring the headline acts from the music festivals. Plenty of places to eat and drink, both inside and outside.

Large cobbled square in the centre of Arras with a big selection of bars and resturants around the perimeter. I understand the square was named and dedicated to the towns resistance fighters who lost their lives in WW2

While we were in Arras as a stop over to see Vimy we took time to wander around and take in this site. So much history and to know it met great destruction in both WW I and WW II made it very meaningful to...More
