The gothic house

Wrongly called "Philippe le Bel Hotel", this massive gothic house has a similar plan to a basic medieval house, the civil architecture is typical form the 13th and 14th century.

Most of the ogival windows, which extend the full width of the facade, feature sculpted decoration that is difficult to interpret, given the richness and complexity of medieval iconography.
The figure depicted, holding two fleurs-de-lys in his hands, could represent an allegory of royal power.
Other symbols are carved on the facades: a tree, perhaps a walnut, emblem of Guillaume de Nogaret, lord of the Vaunage and Petite Camargue.
The ground floor may have served as a shop, with bay windows opening onto a merchant's stall.

Recent work in the Rue de la Libération has uncovered other Renaissance facades.
