Place Saint-Louis



brief description: 

situated in the east of the old town, Place Saint-Louis is one of the most remarkable public squares in Metz and a very popular tourist destination. It was erected on the remains of a Roman defensive wall. A legacy of the Lombard bankers who came to run the city´s finances in the 13th century, the houses lining the square clearly bear witness to the influence of Italian architecture: with their façades towering above the roofs, the buildings appear even more majestic. Place Saint-Louis was one of the most important market squares in Metz during the Middle Ages. The 60 very well preserved Gothic arcades, under which the bankers conducted business at the time, are especially noteworth
