Lovely clock and great little area to stroll around. The Old Town area is a must to view and we found the Monday good as a lot of the shops were closed. Regards Gary Saunders

I’m so glad we saw this on the way on the way to the Joan of Arc cite. It is beautifully gilded and the arch it’s sits upon has carvings. Totally a gem walking around.

It's an easy walk - it's fairly level. I have one knee replaced and the other needs to be done. I always use a cane when touring (otherwise at home I don't) to give you some idea of how mobile I am.
