It's a very attractive town hall located on a square but the real star is the watch tower that is attached to the Hotel de Ville.

"Hotel" translates into "large public building" in French (more or less) and this "Hotel" is the town's house for governmental business. The flags, balcony, and ornate wooden carved doors set this apart from all else in Old Town. There's a public square in front; it...More

Situated in the centre of the old town and close to lovely squares and the shopping area, this is a must place to visit. The peace and tranquility after the hustle and bustle of the town is heaven and the architecture outstanding.

Most interesting part of the building is the clock tower....the various figurines and the roof of the clock tower. The town hall itself is set in a charming square in which the flower market takes place. If you’re walking round old town you’re most likely...More
