This is a medieval square built over a plague pit which is commerorated by the peculiar wood carvings of various bones on the half timbered houses. It has that 'faded glory' feel about it which makes it all the more endearing and is a pleasant place to sit for a while to take in the atmosphere.
This courtyard area has late medieval charm (although one can be suspicious of the mummified cat). The carvings of death are a fascinating iconography of the subject. It is only a couple of minutes walk from St-Maclou church and well worth a visit.
