Place des Héros, or Petite Place, Arras, France

Place des Héros might be the smaller square, but the majestic town hall and belfry draw visitors’ eyes toward it.

Although the square is no longer used as a main trading post, the Wednesday and Saturday morning markets are great venues for fresh produce, local foods, hand-crafted jewelry and decorative goods.

The entire square, town hall and periphery of Flemish houses were rebuilt after being nearly destroyed during WWI.
