Don't visit Cluny without strolling through its medieval city.
The monastery town of Cluny is surprisingly rich in architecture and beautiful medieval houses. More than 200 houses built between the XIe and the XIVe century are in place, of which about fifty have all or part of the façade decoration.
On the ground floor, the craftsman worked. On the upper floor, the clerestory windows allowed the inhabitants to observe the street and its activities. The more windows, the richer the owner of the house was.
