HÔTEL DE VILLE

The castle and old count's residence
This building, the castle and old count's residence was converted into the Town Hall from 1858 to 1869 by the architect Paul Abadie.
He has kept two towers from the former castle: the polygonal keep built by the Lusignans in the 13th and 14th centuries, and the round tower (or Valois tower) of the 15th century where Marguerite d’Angouleme, sister of Francis the First, would have been born in 1492.

The other parts of the building were built in an eclectic style, in agreement with the tastes of the 19th century and drawing on medieval forms, Renaissance and classic style.
