Street District Animals Ruelle des Chats
We call this little street of Troyes rue Maillard since the 15th century, but it became famous with the name ruelle des Chats, "street of the Cats"... Why? Look at that! According to the legend, a cat could jump from roof to roof, effortlessly! And we can see a small cat's head sculpted on the wood.
