Beautiful, haunting and melancholy. We stumbled on this place while wandering the neighborhood, and we spent about 40 minutes just exploring this ruin.

This is a courtyard which is surrounded by the former charnelhouse of the district. Lovely shade trees and peacefulness.

NOTE: We reviewed this under A'itre St. Maclou' which is the same so see more detail there if interested. This is an ossuary courtyard from the Middle Ages.

In front of the church with corbelled merchants houses, restored after the awful WWII damage. Peaceful and a must-see

Rue Eau de robec, Place du Vieux-Marche, Rue Saint-Romain, Place de l'Aitre de St. Maclou are all beautiful little streets in Rouen one should wander. There are ample places to sit and enjoy a meal, drink some cafe and enjoy a crepe.

This place is a truly unknown place in Rouen, even for locals (I can say it for sure ;) ). It is the perfect place to go to get new feelings on a sunny afternoon!

This is a little hidden away but something that should be visited. The history behind the site - with its mass burials - is well worth following up but the architecture just by itself is worth a look. Half-timbered buildings are always lovely but this...More

During the warm months of the year, they are now using the Aitre as a place to put on outdoor performances - when we were there, they were doing Shakespeare's "Midsummer Nights Dream." So the central area, which used to be just a series of...More
