A lovely street with a delightful atmosphere. A good restaurant which unfortunately was open on the two days we were visiting. Look for the waterwheels.

Whilst exploring the city on foot it is worth making a detour to this street just for the historical information you can glean from the surroundings.

Within the walled city but away from the crowds, this area has some unique features and history as a fabric centre. Only a few minutes from anywhere within the walls and a calm and cooler place. Lots of restaurants that appeared to be favoured by locals.

We walked along here a few times - it was on our route. I would have loved to see an explanation of how the waterwheels were used. It's pretty and there are quite a few cafes.

The Teinturiers is off the main tourist hub and so most of the voices at the bar and then restaurant last night were French. The street was pretty quiet until 7 or 7.30 when the restaurants got going properly. Although it is along a canal and people talk about the waterwheels, after seeing the pristine waters and well maintained waterwheels... More

This street with the remains of some of the original water wheels is an interesting walk. Not a criticism per se, but hardly any water running along the waterway now.

So pleased we stumbled across this fabulously themed bohemian street. From the impressive water wheels, stone architecture and the stunning art installation at the church, not to mention the other delightful distractions. A brilliantly alive little hideaway

This is a pretty little street lined with fun restaurants but not as scenic as you might expect. Lovely for lunch or dinner but don't expect to be overwhelmed by the history and water works.

The water wheels are worth any detour you have to make. Some are in pristine condition, some aren't (which is a shame). The canal is still running clean - and some lovely looking mansions along parts of it. I wandered through early in the morning enroute to somewhere else, so everything shut - but appears to be plenty of restaurants/cafes... More

Even in early spring, with many shops closed, this street charmed me…with the mossy wall, the water wheel, cobblestone street, monastery. A couple good restaurants here, too. Stroll it, you'll like it!
