Pretty street by a canal

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!

Unfortunately it was a wet and cold day when we visited, and although looked quite interesting and pretty, the sunshine would have made the experience much better. Also, there seemed to be a number of closed street cafes. Sitting at one of these on a nice day would be quite idyllic I would imagine.

We were doing some little walking tours of the historic areas of Avignon and found this street. It was getting dark and the further toward the town walls we walked the quieter it became. However it was pretty cool to see the remains of the old canal and to find many of the old water wheels, some in good condition,... More

A very nice walking street with waterwheels form days of old. The street isn't very lively some nights but on the weekend, it was most enjoyable. We enjoyed drinks outdoors before dinner nearby.
