See the site of the 8th-century St. Lambert's Cathedral at Place Saint-Lambert, now a central square in front of the former Prince-Bishop's Palace. The foundation of the former cathedral, which stood here for over 1,000 years, is still preserved in the Archéoforum Museum just below the square. You can visit it by following a flight of stairs that lead down to the entrance. The square is also a bus hub for the city, so there is a constant stream of new faces moving through the attraction. The square can be toured quickly, so consider including it on a walking tour of the city. To visit Place Saint-Lambert and other attractions in Liege, use our Liege trip maker site .

  • This is the square has become a major bus terminal. Just the CocaCola bus had new product campaign, one person 1 can. There are historical buildings around the square but not because there is nothing in the square itself.

  • I admit have never liked the place Saint Lambert since its renovation after several years of construction, close to 20 years, if not more, work! This place has lost its legendary conviviality. Who still linger to admire the Majesty of the courthouse or the facades of the Inno? It is also best not to walk the nose in the air under penalty of being run over by a bus! Buses are the Kings of this place, they come from left to right and good luck to cross. Pavers are roughed and can't resist these behemoths frequent passages. Another downside, the stones along the shops lining turns into ice when it's raining or snowing a few flakes. People cross, scramble without seeing really, hurry and tight as sardines to bus stops. A discreet plaque reminding passers-by the tragedy of December 13, 2011. A man has terrorized in just a few minutes on this black square with people. Grenades exploded, firing machine gun... Of the dead, disabled for life. On Sunday, the place Saint Lambert, is quieter and it is only in these moments you can enjoy at your ease of very beautiful buildings that escaped the destructive madness of some architects

  • This place is long a canker to open sky. On the occasion of the work, major archaeological finds have emerged. They are celebrated by an archeoforunm without scope and pilasters in metal that symbolizes the location of columns that supported the largest cathedrals of Christianity before the Liège revolution. The buildings that surround it are done as much of this Palace of the Prince-Bishops grandiose and rundown of island without charm.

  • No special interest but shopping and transportation hub. Archeological museum under the square
  • Nice environment surrounded by Saint Lambert gallery, McDonald's.. You can also use the busses to your destination.
  • Would be nice if you could eat here.
  • Nice place, like a kind of a shopping mall close by.
  • Near the shops. Beautiful view around.
