Place Kléber

In the Middle Ages, the area now occupied by place Kléber was the site of a Franciscan monastery. At the end of the 17th century, the square became place d’Armes. An urban embellishment plan, drawn up by Jacques-François Blondel in 1768, saw the construction of the Aubette, a monumental building designed for military use. The square underwent many changes of name before it was given its present one to celebrate the inauguration of the statue of General Jean-Baptiste Kléber in 1840. The square has been redesigned several times over the centuries and is now a pedestrian-only area, home to a number of cultural and sports-related events and celebrations1.
