Hôtel Jean Beaucé

This is quite an original building - its lantern topped with a cupola on the right and, in the centre, the staircase tower with its oblique openings - very unusual for the Renaissance. In the left corner, notice the little adjoining bays that made it possible to observe others without being seen.
