Attractions and places of interest
Entertainment and Leisure

An extravagant shopping arcade built during the 19th century, this listed building combines neo-classical style with sumptuous decoration. Designed to rival similar arcades, based on oriental bazaars such as those of Paris, the Passage Pommeraye is an intimate space away from the bustle of the streets and cars where statues and beautifully carved stonework make for a pleasant shopping experience. The busy boutiques really bring this place to life!
