Palais Granvelle

Interesting
This superb Renaissance building, built between 1532 and 1542 for Chancellor Nicolas Perrenot de Granvelle, demonstrates the Italian influence on the region's architecture and the city's prosperity in the 16C. There is a pretty interior courtyard surrounded by with porticos in sunken arcades, like a basket handle. It has been home to the Musée du Temps, or Time Museum, since 2002.
