The building, rebuilt in 1516, marks the transition from flamboyant Gothic to the Renaissance style. Admire the beautiful heavy wooden door topped by an opening decorated with peacocks and flowers. Enter the vaulted alley; it links to 8 Quai Romain Rolland. At the opening of the courtyard, look at the building on the right: it has a mullioned window with double crosses, a luxury for that time. Do not miss the exceptional twisted core of the stairs. In Gothic style it is common to see a stair flourish under the arch into a beautiful palm tree.
