Former town hall

Recommended
Built in 1552 in Rhone Renaissance style, this former town hall is unique in France with three of its façades decorated with fine paintings and trompe-l'oeil details. The covered double flight of steps is beautifully balanced. On the right side of the building hangs a grimacing stone mask weighing 12 to 13kg that used to be hung around the necks of scandalmongers who were condemned to riding around town on a donkey, sitting back to front. The building also houses the History Museum.
