The Plaza Real is in the heart of Nantes. Designed by architect Crucy in 1790, it became pedestrian-only just a few months ago. It´s a point of reference for the rich and an attractive sight to see for tourists. Built in 1865, there is a large fountain in the center of the square that represents Nantes, Loire and its tributaries (Cher, Loiret and Sevre). Armed with a trident, the statue of Neptune shows the Atlantic Nantes. The Plaza Real is very lively but offers the opportunity to relax in the sun on a terrace or at the edge of the fountain.
The Plaza de la Bolsa is right in the shopping area of Nantes, next to the Chamber of Commerce. The restaurants, bars and restaurants though less famous compared to those of the Chamber of Commerce, the Place Royale or Graslin, have no need to be jealous. There is a small square in the center which holds a book market every Tuesday.
In the heart of Nantes, opposite the Town Hall, Admiral Halgan Square is very nice place to relax after a tour of the center.

He commanded several ships, such as brick-war Hawk, the birthplace of the corvette, a veteran ship and the ship of the line during the Great War against the British. As a commander with good map knowledge he won many battles against the English. He was given the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor in 1845. At its center is a statue of Maréchal Leclerc.
