If you get the chance then visit this building, it's excellently preserved piece of old France. The guide gave us an excellent tour round in very good English and there's no entry fee. Go visit

Very interesting place to visit, where a really nice guide will explain you how things worked and how people lived in the butcher area in a different era. A must do!
