Old Town

Recommended
The old town is around the Marché aux Vins, a pretty square lined with houses covered with paintings and decorated with many signs that used to house the guilds. Further on, note the old Town Hall (1602-1606), a fine Renaissance building, Place du Cerf, surrounded by pretty restored houses and Place des Moulins, where markets were held in the 16C.
