Loved the old style buildings and cobblestone streets.Much like some of the old style streets in some european cities. Lots of souvenir shops and could have had more variety of shops but still a worthwhile visit.

Take your time walking this old street, one could spend all day here. At one end is the Place Jacques Cartier, with outdoor cafes and street performers. Near the other end is the fabulous Auberge & Restaurant, Bonaparte.

Sorry I am unable to assist you with this question. I travelled there in February for a weekend stay so I am not privy to the road work conditions.
Hi. I'm wondering if this map is correct. According to the reviews, Rue St-Paul ( I mean cobble stone street ) is located around the Basillque Nortre-Dame. Can anyone tell me where exactly the cobble stone street is? Thank you.
