Lane of the city of Rouen
In the center of Rouen on the right bank of the Seine, lies the superb historic center. If most of the streets are wide enough, some neighborhoods have very narrow alleys where only a man can pass as shown in the picture below. These lanes are lined with colorful half-timbered houses; The facades of the houses are not flat, but have rebounds.
