Villa Lumière Town Hall

Built in 1896, it was the second creation of Antoine Lumière, father of the inventor of the cinematograph, after the Château du Clos in La Ciotat. The caryatids are the work of Lyon artist, Devaux, inspired by Pierre Puget's atlas figures in Toulon. There is a superb main staircase seemingly being attacked by an enraged bronze lioness.
