  • A historic district for its half-timbered houses, the chapel Saint-Aurélien and the atmosphere of a neighborhood to discover authentic old town. After the fire that destroyed a few houses, I wish wholeheartedly a rapid restoration, firstly for the inhabitants and then people like me.

  • Actually Street that has preserved a certain authenticity: half-timbered, storefront, Chapel St Aurélien. It is here that formerly were butchers and tripe: House of the butcher to visit to understand life.

  • In a picturesque area, this Street makes us go back in time, both in a point of view of architecture, of the District: icon of butchery. What memories for me, since I was born on this street and I've known the old stalls. These people who have been living this tradition and maintained disappeared, I think of you through my childhood memories. And above all, do not forget to go burn a candle in the chapel which is beautiful.
