+33 8 26 50 05 00 (Tourist Information)
Previously known as Saint Michel, the Place Jean Jaurès is like a plateau that can be reached after a short climb. While historically the square has been visited by many significant personalities like the King of Naples in the 14th Century and Charles IX in the 16th Century, today it displays more modern characteristics than historical ones. With gradual urbanization it has turned into a bustling area, best known for the weekly market called Le Marché de la Plaine. The square also owes its colloquial name, "La Plaine" to this market.
