Bridge and courtyard of Corbeau

Interesting
A witness to patricides and infanticides, enclosed in sewn up sacks and tossed into the waters of the Ill until death ensued. Hence the old name - bridge of torture, of the current Pont du Corbeau. At the side is the prettily restored Cour du Corbeau courtyard, which reveals a fine example of 16C wood-panelled architecture in a genuine maze of galleries and passageways.
