About Place Plumereau, Tours

Place Plumereau (also called Place Plum) is a public square located in the central district of Old Tours. The place dates back to the 15th century and is named after the late Councillor of Tours, Charles Plumereau, who donated 3000 francs to the city. Major highlights of the square include:

  • Several cafes, restaurants and bars around for people to relax, have a drink, enjoy their meals or just people-watch.
  • Surrounded by half-timbered houses and mansions from the 15th century along with numerous Renaissance and Romanesque facades.
  • A great place for absorbing the culture and life of Tours where you can have friendly conversations with residents, students as well as tourists.

Place Plumereau is an excellent place for photographers with its surroundings like picture-postcards and festive ambience. This beautiful pedestrian square is one of the busiest places in Tours and always has some form of entertainment going on, be it day or night.

Formerly known as the ‘Carroi aux Chapeaux’, this place was renovated during the 19th century and you can know more about the restoration work through the tour guides. You can also hop into the ‘little tourist train’ that departs from here for regular tours around the city.
