Nice cobble stone street with shops and restaurants. The famous astronomical clock of the old town is located here. Built in the 14th century, it is one of the oldest clocks in France.

Lined with a variety shops & restaurants. It passes underneath a beautiful clock. The street is kept clean. The buildings along the street are lovely, historic. A nice neighbourhood for a stroll.
