This is a great place to see old and new buildings in Rouen. As old as 1350’s and 21st Century structures. Care comfortable walking shoes and gave a fun time as many restaurants To stop and have a coffee. Enjoy your visit.

Lots of interesting shops and interesting historic buildings. There's a beautiful clock along the way. One end of the street is close to the cathedral, the other end runs into the market square where the Joan of Arc church and marker is.

Lots of stores and restaurants. The architecture is interesting. Some of the restaurants are good; others not so much. The cathedral is worth the stroll

As others have said, it is an interesting and busy place. The clock is worth the trip. It is a fun and quirky historical item.
