This free street is well preserved. The canal brings some relief in the heat and the imagination can bring you the laborers of the past. The fact that it's relatively empty just makes it more special.

The street is named after the people who worked there during the middle age. It has retained most of its original qualities, old building and water wheels. The street is pedestrians only so you can take your time to soak the atmosphere at the "terasse"...More

A few cafés and a couple of nice restaurants, handy to everything and character with the canal and water wheels. Shady in summer.

It's a pittoresque street with a very small canal to the right side and some old water mills. It's a interesting walk, but I expected more after reading the reviews here.

The most beautiful street of the city. The canal, the picturesque bars and bistrots. An unforgetable experience.

Teinturiers is an interesting street with a good mix of restaurants, book shops and theatres which is very lively during the festival and summer months. In the winter it's very quiet with just a couple of bookshops and restaurants open.

Buzzy and trendy area in Avignon. Lots of restaurants nestled amongst lots of fascinating history. This was the river in which the calico washers dipped their cloths. It was also the public sewer! 2-3 water wheels still visible. Wonderfully atmospheric old church just adds to...More
