The old streets of Pont-de-l'Arche

FaçadesWhere you walk your own way. 

It’s up to you to be curious enough to discover the most unusual routes. Find out about civilian architecture in Pont-de-l’Arche as you stroll about its streets. Here, there are quite a few houses dating back to the Renaissance and the Middle Ages, with their porches (which are so cool in summer!), their overhanging storeys, their protruding first floors built on wooden balks. 

The half-timbered houses complete with the 19th century plastered façades, a few of which still boasting the painted adverts of the shops that used to be there. 

A few streets are really worth seeing: 

- rue de l’Abbaye-sans-toile, an old working-class area; 

- rue Blin, where the leading citizens used to live (next to the bailliage); 

- rue Sainte-Marie, which goes along the wall on the inside.
