Orig­i­nally peo­pled by workers in the wine industry, this semi­pedes­tri­anised street has, lit­tle by lit­tle, seen the ar­rival of an­tique and bric-a-brac deal­ers and art gal­leries. At num­ber 61 is Vil­lage Notre-dame, the largest an­tiques gallery in the South-west that is lo­cated in a for­mer print works and brings to­gether 35 pro­fes­sional an­tique deal­ers. The cafés’ ter­rasses spill fill the streets when the sun is out and for the Cel­e­bra­tion of the New Wine with its bric-a-brac, roasted chest­nuts, vin bourru (new wine), street shows and other fes­tive events are on the pro­gramme each au­tumn.
