  • I go mainly in summer, when the wind and the freshness of the establishment takes us of our daily lives. This building, although that degraded in some places by artifices of youngsters, remains my favorite of this city. It is not austere, he offers himself to meditation. It is a charismatic garden surrounded by old stones that tell their story. We stay silent and observed the architecture. This place to three exits that lead, one in the city center, another in the garden of the archbishops and the third in the Cathedral Saint-Juste. Good visit :)

  • Very nice place, old stones, magnificent gardens, between the Cathedral, the Town Hall, the cloister. Center City to see with its great Hall, especially on Saturday, when we celebrate a marriage. Nice walk in the surrounding streets.
