One of the few places not destroyed by bombs in WWII. A cozy atmosphere with plenty of restaurant options to choose from as you wander down the street looking at various menus. Each restaurant offers something different. Highly recommend this area.

Really lovely section of the city. If the rest of Caen survived like this it would rival Paris or Venice. Lots of excellent restaurants and a nice vibe to the people you meet there

Important because so much of Caen was destroyed during the Second World War, yet these houses somehow survived. Beautiful.
