Rue du Bourg

In the 16C, this street became one of the most elegant in Bar-le-Duc, which is echoed by the rich façades of nos 42, 46, 49 and 51. At no 26, the façade of the Maison des Deux-Barbeaux (1618) is decorated with the busts of ladies and mermaids. On the corner of rue Maginot stands a strange monument, rather like the Brussels Mannekenpis, representing a child with a bicycle: this pays homage to a local man, Pierre Michaux, who invented the velocipede in 1861.
