This quaint little village has some amazingly old - like 13th century old - buildings set around canals and open spaces. We were there on market day, and the rustic market stalls and pavilion are clearly meiaeval. We even sampled the frogs legs. Are you that bold?

As vegetarians, we expected to be horrified by the live animals for sale on the Saturday morning before Easter. We were not! The roosters, hens, ducks, geese, and rabbits for sale were healthy, happy, lovely animals. Shoppers took them home in roomy cardboard boxes with breathing holes. If only American livestock were treated this well! The fruits and vegetables were gorgeous as well. A wonderful experience.

En route back to Lyon from a road trip around Burgundy and Alsace, I didn't expect to find an old town with half-timbered houses and a medieval covered market which is still in use. Full of flower festooned foot bridges over the riverlet running through the center of the city.

Interesting restoration but lacks something that would make it authentic. Good for a short stop but don't think it is an all day affair.

A market with live fowl, meats, great cheeses, vegetables and flowers. Packed with people inspecting and buying all under a superb medieval roof - the Saturday market is absolutely great and appreciated by locals and visitors. Plenty of bars too with tables outside inviting for a rest and an apero.
