    A small square quiet and shady, ideal for a break before the ascent to the Citadel or going down. It is the location of the former Church of St.-Jean-Baptistedetruite after the French Revolution. It is not very big but the excavations carried out at the end of the 19th century by M. Castan (where its name) discovered eight Corinthian columns and the remains of the Roman aqueduct that brought water from sources of Arcier. With the Black Gate, which is nearby, we'll be plain in the atmosphere of Vesontio, the name of Besançon in the Gallo-Roman period.

    A little shady, quiet and romantic, garden surrounded by old antique stone and bushes. Journey into the past, forget everything. Charming.

    The theatrical ballad which started from the square Castan and alternated with letsbefriends of the guide was probably one of the most original and remains an excellent memory and very informative
