Major renovation projects - April 2007
Two major houses have being restored and are reaching completion. The Pavilion de la Fontaine is on the main market square and the other renovation on the Place Louis XIII, the former cattle market square. These renovated buildings, both found at important locations in the town's grid layout, have a thrilling impact on vistas around the historic 17th century walled and moated 'cité'. Two further 'hôtels particuliers' or individual mansions are under restoration on the Grande Rue.
