When we visited many of the shops and galleries were closed, the street was torn-up and under construction. The water wheel was fun to see next to the church and there some restaurants and cafes that were full the couple of nights we walked by.

Happened upon this street when looking for a place to get a glass of wine, and ended up coming back each of the 2 next days of our trip in Avignon. We loved the food (especially Ubu and L'offset), and also enjoyed shopping in a cute little thrift store. The cobblestones and waterwheels add to the street's cool, kind of... More

A long row of semi-decrepit buildings containing hip restaurants, galleries and bars on one side and a walled canal on the other with the eerie grounds of the Chapelle des Pénitents Gris (Chapel of the Grey Penitents) on the other side of the canal.

Lots of choice of eateries and bars yo suit all pockets.We walked down here on several evenings for food and just a drink and there was always a good buzz from the establishments strung along the edge of the stream which once turned the water wheels used by the dyers who worked in this area. We ate at La Table... More

make sure you walk along the long street - it runs along a canal and is an ancient route - in the quiet part of the town although it is 'entremuros' central enough but not touristy - nice series of restaurants - feels like what greenwich village NY used to be - you should really go ..

This was recommended by a local off-duty tour guide who we got chatting with and we were glad that we made the visit. It gave us a taste of a different part of the town within the walls. The street cab be reached easily on foot from the centre of the town It's a shame that some of the old... More

This is in a run-down and seedy part of town and could be so much better. Only one of the famed waterwheels was turning at the time of our visit. One of the others was partially dismantled.

Easy to find. Very old street with the old water wheel still there(not working). You can still see where the old workshops were but they are now converted. A very interesting feature is the many carved stones beside the road, some of which feature the history of the area, It does not take very long to walk through. However I... More

This street is very historic and less touristy than other parts of Avignon. The streets are cobbled, and locals (mostly young people) enjoy the outdoor cafes.
