Great Clock

0.38 mi / 0.61 km from the hotel
This famous astronomical clock is among the oldest in France. Fully restored in 2006, it comprises a Gothic belfry, a Renaissance archway and clock face, and an 18th-century fountain. The belfry houses the city bells and the clock mechanisms, which were in operation from the 14th century to 1928. In the pavilion, you can access the dials room and the old apartment of the 'clock governor.'
