The salmon house isn't far from the cathedral and is an excellent example of the half erred houses in this area of Chartres.

Well preserved and used as the tourist office so a good place to start your visit to Chartres. Doesn't even smell of fish.

Once the center of a bustling fish market, its now the Tourism Office of Chartres, amazing History and tales of the days gone by.
