Adam House

Recommended
Lop-sided and gutted, this 16C house with wood-panels and pillars decorated with many sculpted characters, is believed to take its name from the apple tree which seems to prop up the angled turret and which previously bore two statues of Adam and Eve. However, the owner in the 18C was called Michel Adam. Amazing coincidence! The house is one of the most famous sights of Angers.
