The cadastral map of the walled town of Richelieu


The town lies on the points of the compass, with the grid plan following North, East, South and West (more or less!).
This map shows the cadastral property plan of the walled town. If you click anywhere on the image it will down-load a much larger version so that you can examine it. The main public buidings and squares have been indicated. The place du Marché, which is the main square at the bottom (S) of the plan, is under comprehensive restoration at the moment.
