Hôtel de ville de Riom

This town hall has a pretty 16C courtyard enclosed by two corps de logis with galleries with ogival vaulting, where you can see two Rodin bronzes (the Gallia Victrix represents Camille Claudel). In the corridor at the entrance is an enamelled lava stone plaque reproducing the letter Joan of Arc sent to prompt the people of Riom: she had asked them for money to supply cannon powder, and despite their promises, they had to be cajoled into finally paying up.
