Important because so much of Caen was destroyed during the Second World War, yet these houses somehow survived. Beautiful.

One of my favourite restaurants is in this area. It's full of wonderful old buildings with loads of character and a great place to wander through, especially at night. Loads of great restaurants and cafes. highly recommend a little visit here.

We have been eating in this area three times during our stay in Caen at it has always been a very good choice. This is the restaurant mile with very good options for a variety of tastes and budgets.

In this place, you'll find a group of Caen's oldest houses, still remainning after the D-Day 1944. An architectural interest for seeing a city of Normandy houses, from XVI to XVIII centuries
