La Coursive

The interior of this former Carmelite chapel was destroyed then rebuilt in 1982 and has since become a national theatre. Only the elegant façade was spared: it contains an imposing 17C portal adorned with a scallop. The inscription "marché au poisson" (fish market) serves to remind us that the Coursive was a marketplace in the 19C.
