  • We visited this wedding hall decorated in 1957 by Jean Cocteau with a city guide of Art and History. Very nice discovery of a remarkable place. A superb work by Cocteau. This is one of the must-see stakes in this city. only downside: average reception by municipal staff present at the administrative reception of the Town Hall, but well compensated by the staff Art and History.

  • How unusual Cocteau is, just as unusual is this place! One idea to depict on the wall of the wedding hall the denouement of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice (not the most joyful, let's face it, the plot) is worth!
