The cathedral district : discovery route

The cathedral district was, until the 19th century, an island linked to the rest of the city by various bridges. Through their names, the Pont-d’Avroy and Pont-d’Île streets allude to this now disappeared past (pont means bridge in French). Next to the cathedral, the district is renowned for its many shops, the Carré, the Forum, the church of Saint-Jacques, the Lemonnier passage shopping gallery and a wealth of other points of interest that this itinerary invites you to discover.
