(Street of the Owl)

This street has a fine view over the chevet of the Church of Our Lady. At no 10, note the half-timbered house. Where does the street get its name? From the owl carved out of a buttress of the 15C Chambellan chapel. If you stroke it with your left hand and make a wish it will apparently come true.
