About the Place Billard

The place opens up where the “tower” (the castle) of the counts of Chartres used to be under the Ancien Régime. It was named after the mayor who had the castle pulled down in the 19th century and created the square, surrounded by houses that were all similar, centred around a covered market in the metal. By day this location is full of life with its market and bric-a-brac shops, but it also attracts visitors at night, especially the young, thanks to its interactive installation.
