Fodor's Review

As Fribourg expanded from the Basse-Ville, it crossed the river over the Pont du Milieu (Middle Bridge) to a narrow bank, the Planche-Inférieure, where picturesque, terraced houses abound. As the town prospered, it spread to the statelier 16th- and 17th-century Planche-Superiéure, a large, sloping, open triangular place (square) that was once the busy livestock market. It is now lined with several upscale restaurants and cafés. From here you can walk up to the

Chapelle de Lorette (Loreto Chapel), once a favored pilgrimage site, for the best view of Fribourg.
