While many of these houses are interesting this one stands out, There are perhaps fifty carved figures on the facade. Really interesting, plus trying to find the male figure with his pants pulled down always fun.

We came across this whilst having a walk around the town on the evening we arrived. It was sadly closed, so we couldnt look inside but what I could see through the windows was lovely. Not sure if I would go in with young kids,...More

Just love this place. Located in a very old building on a couple of floors. I have been before and just find it fascinating to walk around. The staff are helpful but not pushy. I particularly like the Murano glass pendants etc. A must for...More

Amazingly this lovely old building has survived into the modern age. One can but half close one's eyes and think of it in the days when it was one of many. It provides a real contrast between those earlier years and the succeeding centuries

Since the shop inside is housed in a legitimate historic monument, you'll find the quality of the goods offered (as well as the prices) to be higher than the usual, as one would expect. I bought a number of tapestry pillow-covers that were easy to...More

We were waling around after visiting the Cathedral and happened to go into the little square that houses the building. I wouldn't necessarily seek it out but if you're in the area, it's worth a quick detour. There is a very interesting gallery at street...More

Definitely my favorite building in the city! It is a medieval house with timber framings built in the13 century and is decorated with numerous sculptures, try to find the famous "Tricouillard"

Maison d'Adam is a half-time buillding (as is the norm for Normandy) but with some incredible and ornate carvings. The original figures of Adam and Eve are missing but only the tree remains on the bottom floor on the corner. Considering the explicit detail of...More
