  • The top two levels have been raised at the end of the 16th century, to welcome, one, the cells of prisoners, the other, the housing of the guardians. At the lowest level of the building, is a large medieval vaulted Hall, which the ventilation is provided by an opening in the back wall. On this wall, there is a door arch, flanked by two windows, all enigmatically bricked up. The building was municipal jail at the end of the 18th century, then disciplinary premises for the soldiers of the garrison. From 1940, when the introduction of the STO, the German occupants are locked up men who tried to flee to Spain. Very wisely, a permanent exhibition took place inside the building, which recalls the tradition of the City Saint: educational panels, reproductions of costumes, presentation of old items. In addition, temporary exhibitions are held regularly on the upper floor. An informative tour, in complement of all the others. Admitted to the historical monument by Decree as of September 3, 2012.
