Historic site and monument

House of heads

Built during the beginning of the 16th century, this house gives evidence of the transition of the Flamboyant Gothic style to the Renaissance.
It has been named that way because of the many heads carved on its facade, in the corridor and in the courtyard.
On the front facade, winds, wealth, time and iconic characters representing theology, law and medicine are represented.
