Old buildings

I can never understand why planners allow modern shops to spoil these buildings.
It ruins their appearance

Architectural gem in a concrete jungle
Jun 2018 • Couples
Two adjoining buildings which somehow survived the devastation of the city, worth a glance as you pass by, only really notable as so little else survives. The city had to be largely rebuilt after the war, so they have quite some excuse, but this just demonstrates the craftsmanship of past centuries in contrast to the huge amounts of concrete that had to be thrown up across Europe after the war, most of which is coming down or already has done so, as it was not fit to last.

Striking contrast to current buildings
Apr 2018 • Couples
Considering how much of Caen was lost during the war, it is still striking each time we see these homes and the contrast of the modern shops and shopping street below. Locals likely don’t notice them anymore, but they helped us imagine what the whole area may have looked like. If in Caen, it’s worth a stroll by and the street they are located on has loads of shops, restaurants and cafes.

We were in Caen and while touring saw these extremely old buildings. The wooden architecture is most amazing.

Impressive and unique

This timber-framed building is much more impressive than La Maison des Quatrans. The wooden construction with wood carving ornaments are simply unique!

Great to look at, no visit possible
Aug 2016 • Couples
These houses are one of the oldest of Caen. When we were here last week the left house was under construction behind scaffold,ing. The other one was still visible and very impressive. the woodwork is really nice. There is no entrance to visit the houses, just watch the front in the streets.

Cool, but not a must-see
May 2016 • Family
It's not easy to miss these houses, as they are right next to the Chateau de Caen. They are the oldest houses in the city, and there's a plaque nearby explaining the history. However, there's not much to see besides to take a quick picture.

It will take you 2 minutes, but take the time to look for these houses from another time. So beautiful and rare.

But nothing extraordinary...
Dec 2015 • Couples
If you are walking around the city, it is nice to see, maybe stop take a picture and voila.. but it is not worth going to Caen just to see this facade. If you happen to see it, good, if not, you will miss nothing extraordinary.
