Motte Quarter

At the centre of this spread-out city are two separate medieval quarters – one is the area of La Cité around the Gothic cathedral, and a few hundred metres away, you will find the Château (or Motte) quarters charming streets and lanes around the former marketplace. Around these the modern boulevards and squares surround the old districts. In the heart of the Château, or Motte quarter, is rue de la Boucherie which as the name suggest - is the butchers’ chapel of Saint-Aurélien, a traditional butcher’s home and a beautiful covered market.
