This is a beautiful building in the middle of the city, so I guess you will see it by default. Just look up and enjoy the amazing architecture.

Beautiful building in the middle of a square. The details of the "towers" are amazing. Either sunny or rainy day it is worth the visit.

We passed by on a Sunday afternoon and were welcomed by Salsa and Tango dancing on the square. Just join in if you can do the moves or not, it's great fun.

The Hotel de Ville has been around for over a hundred, maybe 200 years. This is a hotel with awesome architecture, style and class - also pricey. If you get to France and you have the time / money give it a try.

It's roughly 350 years old and the handsome detailed stonework has the presence of an urban Vaux Le Vicomte or Versailles. Would have liked to see the main reception... More
