  • This square is very small, but bearer of trees, ancient columns and a secret entrance. Located right next to the Black Gate, to the homeland houses of Victor Hugo and the Lumière brothers, the Cathedral and the astronomical clock, it will be a place to rest on your way to exploring the capital in grandfather.

  • Stopped because some looked my way towards the Saint Jean Cathedral in old Entasis columns. Is considered and the Roman Theatre, so it clearly is. But I would imagine that long ago in an atmosphere like that is certainly so, I walked.

  • 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.
