    The Jacquemart

    by Klod5 Written Oct 19, 2003

    Symbol of the liberties and the exemption of the bourgeoises, acquired by the charter of 1232, this pink sandstone belfry, rising to 45 meters, has been built from 1451 to 1455. At the time, an articulate bellringer, called Jacquemart hit the hours. Two fires had to ravage the monument: one in 1655, the other, for the 1st birthday of the victory in 1946, destroyed the whole campanile. The automatons, to the number of 4 since the XVIIè century, hammer the bells every 15 minutes: parents sound the hours, the children the quarters. They have been redone in copper in 1947. Coming with Jacquemart, Jacquette the mother, Jacqueline and Jacquelin the children, measure 1,80m and 1m of height respectively.

Moulins Restaurants


    This is an art deco restaurant with parking meters immediately outside. It is very French and is like going back in time. Was a haunt of Coco Channel. Lovely murels, lighting and glass roof. Unfortunately both times we hit this restaraunt they were closed for lunch - so we could only manage a coffee - well worth paying a bit over the odds for the...

  • Mirror mirror on the wall, what café is...

    We stumbled into this café restaurant through our basic rule of thumb: were there is a crowd, it is good. The interior baffled us. The tourist info sums it up:The Grand Café, a brasserie café on the place d'Allier, is one of the finest of its kind in France - Listed as a Historical Monument, it has conserved its interior decor from 1899 - The Art...
