Le Pilori

Interesting
This curious building, the former town hall, is built in the shape of a trapezoid. In the 16C, architect Mathurin Bertomé added semicircular towers, and crowned it with merlons and mullioned windows. The building's name comes from the fact that it was originally built on the site of the medieval pillory.
