Landmark · Tourist Spot
Jaude Square (French: Place de Jaude) is a major city square and meeting place in the centre of Clermont-Ferrand, France. It is bordered by Rue Blatin on the North and Avenue Julien on the south. The square is home to many attractions, such as the Opera Theatre, the Jaude Shopping Mall and Saint-Pierre-des-Minimes Church.
Jaude Square was founded in the Roman times but was abandoned in the Middle Ages.

Overlooking the square is a massive statue of the ancient Gallic leader Vercingetorix. Erected in 1903, it was created by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, who also made the Statue of Liberty.
The modern square was inaugurated on 17 June 2006, with over 30,000 people coming to attend the opening ceremony.

  • We always ask for a room overlooking the square when we stay in Clermont Fernando. It’s smart - especially at night lit up - and lots of shops and restaurants.  more »
