Beautiful

The central fountain is covered by a large metallic ship. Stunning and worth the detour, Unfortunately we understand this is only a temporary exhibition. Even without that the classical square is nice and pleasant

Attractive square with elegant buildings and some pleasant cafes.
Sep 2019
We enjoyed a glass of wine at one of several cafes on the edge of the Place Royale. One point of interest is a substantial display relating to the enormous damage done to the city by Allied air raids directed against the occupying Nazis during WW11.

Historic square great for people watching
Jul 2019 • Couples
Beautiful square with shops and restaurants around a central pedestrianised area with fountains. Nantes once again was showing its bonkers side when we visited with hundreds of additional statues placed in the square, some of which could have come from a chateau, some from the local garden centre by the looks of them. There was performance art on the Saturday night too, and I would imagine that is a regular occurrence !

Nice big square
Aug 2018 • Family
Place Royale is a big square located in Nantes, a city in Loire-Atlantique Region, in the Northwest of France. It is a nice square, which is surrounded by important and beautiful buildings. Here there are some bars and restaurants, so you can go there to see the square and eat or drink something. Nice.

Righr in the middle of the old city, only people can go there, no cars. There is a big fountain in the middle and lots of cafes and restaurants around.

Elegant space
Apr 2019 • Solo
Surrounded by elegant architecture and dominated by the fountain a tribute to the Loire river and Nantes association with the sea and trade.
Worth a walk through enroute to Passage Pommeraye which is signposted off the Place

Some beautiful architecture and a lovely fountain
Apr 2019 • Couples
This isn't the most impressive square I have visited but the architecture is beautiful and the fountain is worth a look. The Basilica rises up behind the buildings creating a picturesque panorama.

Lovely Architecture and Square
Mar 2019 • Friends
Architecture in the area is lovely with a view of Basilica St. Nicolas at one of the corners. Fountain is beautiful with people resting and talking along its base.
