Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.

A walk down this street will take you back to another time and place! There are structures/houses that have been standing for centuries; some look like they are leaning precariously. The walkways are narrow and uneven, and paved with cobblestones. Very charming!

For a little side street, Rue Saint-Roman is packed with interesting businesses. OK, the location is ideal - just on the north side of the cathedral. We did some shopping there - found some lovely glassware and great chocolate. And we didn't get a chance to eat at the creperie on the street, but it looked nice.

And of course the half-timbered buildings, a feature of many of Rouen's historic streets, are in abundance here!

The Rue Saint-Romain is a narrow pedestrian street leading eastwards from the northern side of the Notre Dame Cathedral Square. Its main feature is the variety of coloured half-timbered Gothic and Renaissance buildings, mostly sitting above shops and boutiques.

The old buildings date variously from between the 15C and the 18C and, in my opinion, are worth a short visit due to the picturesque architecture and photo opportunities.

It's interesting to walk down this street. On an old wall near the cathedral there is a plaque that says something about the inquiry ordered by Charles VII into Joan of Arc's trial several years earlier. I like the courtyard outside of the cathedral--it has a statue of St. Romain.
