If you are in Caen and in the center of the city, it is worth walking over to see these two buildings. They are not only old, but contain interesting carvings. These are the homes of long ago were people threw the contents of chamber pots out of the window and had to shop every day as there was no refrigeration. This is like it used to be - a very, very, long time ago. Amazing that they still stand.

In the centre of the city, these two well preserved buildings are worth a look. Untouched, it seems, by modern needs and renovation, they show you maybe how the city may have been years ago
