This building, formerly a grand hotel for foreigners, designed by Frédéric Giniez, is particularly impressive due to its axial span. On three floors, Corinthian or ringed columns frame the bays. Note also the wealth of carved decorations, such as the lions' heads on the consoles of the first floor balcony. The decorations on the wooden door are also interesting. Until very recently, this building housed the Bank of France.
