The Marché aux Poulets (chicken market) is an extension of the Marché aux Herbes (herbs market), so it is also a pedestrian shopping street. The architecture ranges from (neo)Renaissance ensembles to Fin-de-Siècle buildings and 20th century styles. The houses on the Rue de Tabora on the even side are adjacent to the Church of St. Nicholas. This Romanesque church, a stone's throw from the Bourse, was repaired and even rebuilt several times until the 1950s.
