I especially loved the clock itself, which I rated 5/5. However, the street leading to it does not feel like it belongs there: lots of popular shops and warehouses are located here, and the authenticity is just not there. Go for the clock, and maybe...More

Not all medieval but a good selection of shops all well presented. Reminds me of the Shambles in York UK

Nice cobble stone street with shops and restaurants. The famous astronomical clock of the old town is located here. Built in the 14th century, it is one of the oldest clocks in France.

Lined with a variety shops & restaurants. It passes underneath a beautiful clock. The street is kept clean. The buildings along the street are lovely, historic. A nice neighbourhood for a stroll.

Yet another of those must see, must do attractions that the wonderful Rouen has to offer. It has stood in the centre of the city for many centuries, and is as good today as it was when it was first built.

A nice monument to visit on a trip to Rouen. The clock itself, the archways and the statues are all beautiful, but the historic fronts of the buildings overhead are the real wonder. They have preserved the buildings so well and maintained this city's culture...More

The Great Clock on itself is beautiful to see and enormous in its size, but the rest of the street seems to be solely oriented on business, like many touristic locations nowadays. Although this might be very nice for shopping, the front of the ancient...More
