Marché aux Poissons/Vismarkt
   The Fish Market designates a lengthy, tree-lined area flanking a remnant of the city's old harbor on the northwest side of the church of Sainte-Catherine. Fish and other wares were sold here from the 19th century until 1955. A number of seafood restaurants help to maintain the maritime atmosphere.
