A very pretty square and area. Filled with restaurants and shops. Make sure you look at all the tributaries that run around. The restaurants here are very busy in the evenings.

The area has a nice feel and some great shops to browse through. There are also a number of cafe and eating places that looked like they were worth a stop. I would say an hour with a coffee stop would be sufficient to enjoy...More

The Place aux Oignons is a quaint little place in the heart of Vieux Lille. It really came alive in an early morning visit

So it was pretty boring in spring, but my friend from Lille assured me it is amazing in summer. Use google maps to find.
