Rue de la Coutellerie

Lined by the buildings of the Musée de la Coutellerie from nos 23 et 58, this street is aptly named. The shell at nº 5 is a reminder that Thiers was a stopping-point on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route. Note the unusual houses at nos 12 and 14, and at nº 21 the Maison de l'Homme des Bois, adorned with an enigmatic figure to which some have attributed esoteric significance.
