Maison des Têtes (House of the Heads)

Interesting
This large house, a fine example of Renaissance architecture built in 1609 by a wealthy merchant, is aptly named given its decor of no fewer than 106 sculpted heads on its façade. It also boasts a magnificent oriel window which extends over three floors.
