Honfleur's Vieux-Bassin

Recommended
It was created by Duquesne under the orders of Colbert. It is surrounded by beautiful quays and the yachts add a touch of charm. The rich two-story, sloping roof stone dwellings on St-Étienne quay contrast with those of quay Ste-Catherine where narrow and tall houses, up to 7 stories, thrust up their wooden facades protected by slate (overlapped boarding). The Lieutenance, which overlooks the vertical lift bridge, completes this unique ensemble.
