Which locations can be contrated

What's the difference between the locations that can have preceding articles and those that can't?

Bonjour Robert,

Please find a few (non-exhaustive) examples below:

La Rochelle -> Je vais à la Rochelle = I am going to La Rochelle

                     Je viens de la Rochelle = I am going from La Rochelle

Les États-Unis -> Je vais aux États-UnisI am going to the United States

                        Je viens des États-Unis = I am coming from the United States

Le marché -> Je viens du marchéI am coming from the market

                   Je vais au marché I am going to the market

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
