    Palais Rohan at Place Pey Berland

    Located just steps away from Cathedral St Andre (at Place Pey Berland) and dominating the center of the old city is the Palais Rohan (or hotel de Ville). The current structure, which parts can be dated to medievil times, owes is name and renovations to the Archbishop Ferdinand Maximilien Mériadec de Rohan.

    The building currently houses the town hall of Bordeaux. The Museum of Fine Arts can be found here as well.

    Le Palais Rohan - mi's

    Le Palais Rohan has served as Hotel de Ville or city hall since the 1800s, although it was originally constructed as the home of an archbishop. This attraction is likely one reason Bordeaux has been compared to Versailles. Don’t miss the stunning trompe l’oeil décor in the dining room.

    Palais Rohan

    Or the Hotel de Ville (city hall). It used to be the old archbishop's palace and can be dated back to the early middle-ages. In 1771 archbischop Ferdinand-Maximilien Meriadec de Rohan decided to restructure the building and give it its present look. The front and the back of the main structure are identical. The 2 pavillions are now part of the museum of fine arts.
