Place des Halles

Historic site and monument, Halle in Rochefort-en-Terre
  • Main square of the town from the 17th century, the Place des Halles has long remained one of the important places, hosting fairs and markets.

  • The halls constitute the economic and social heart of the village, a place of meeting, sharing and exchange. They are built of granite and schist stones (pillars) and wood (framework). They are implanted in a U shape; originally they were open to the outside.
