Rue de la Charpenterie Street District

Here we are now in a little street originally occupied by carpenters and masons (charpenterie = "carpentry").

Most of the buildings here is composed of houses with shops on ground floor.

Oh, have you seen this? The communal façades at numbers 20, 22, 24 were built in 1758: they're set back from others street's buildings. It was landscaped in the 18th century, when they decided to enlarge city's streets in order to bring some light. The house at number 32 was built in 1501. The ground floor was modified in the 18th century and used to house a shop. Number 34's house was raised in 1519.


And also!
