19 – The Place Billard

About the scenography

Artistic design: MO-CA illustration

Place Billard illuminated by the City with a creation by MO-CA – Chartres en lumières

The covered market, a key place in the city center, is highlighted by dynamic lighting.

At its heart, an original illustration representing the city of Chartres is projected on the ground. It represents a round of facades of emblematic places, symbols of the historical and cultural heritage of the city.


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.
