The Benedictine Abbey and its garden (now Town Hall)

The buildings of the former Benedictine abbey (now Town Hall) date from the ninth century. The premises have been ravaged by wars of religion in the sixteenth century. The current buildings were built in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The facade of City Hall has acquired its final form in the nineteenth century. Inside, the main staircase is decorated with frescoes and trompe-l'oeil. The garden is the former kitchen garden and amenity of the monks.
