Grange aux Dîmes, Provins

Interesting
A basic 13C construction with a military look. The Grange belonged to the canons of Saint-Quiriace, who rented it out to merchants during the Champagne fairs. It then served as a warehouse for tithes paid by peasants. An audio-guided tour, Provins au temps des foires de Champagne (Provins at the Time of the Champagne Fairs) reconstructs the atmosphere of the fairs.
