NOTE: We reviewed this under A'itre St. Maclou' which is the same so see more detail there if interested. This is an ossuary courtyard from the Middle Ages.

Rue Eau de robec, Place du Vieux-Marche, Rue Saint-Romain, Place de l'Aitre de St. Maclou are all beautiful little streets in Rouen one should wander. There are ample places to sit and enjoy a meal, drink some cafe and enjoy a crepe.
