  • The exterior is truly magnificent. Inside conversely quickly visit. The proposed exhibition is mediocre by his iconography. A few images are printed on A4 sheets and laminated; texts don't lack of interest, but it's still called an exhibition...

  • Work of the world-famous Picq (late 19th). Administrative and Cultural Center Department, right next to the prefecture, the central police station and the Bougenaud Pavilion. Eclectic style, with different loans. Mosaics on the front. Metal arches inside. Regional fund important upstairs. A few books that belonged to Victor Schoelcher; Andel54
