    The Hotel de la Raymondie is sited in the Place des Consuls next to the covered market (Halles). It is a large building and was built between 1280 and 1330. At one end is a crenellated belfry (actually a keep). There are cylindrical towers at each corner. We did not enter the fine courtyard or climb up to the museum of local archeological finds an other antiquities.

    On the flat apse wall behind the altar is a large Gothic style stained glass window. It was created in the early 1500's by a master, Arnaud de Moles. It spells out the last days of Christ in three horizontal rows of four vertical panels (12 pictures) with fine tracery above containing enhancing figures in glass. The lower left panels begin with Christ's Entry into Jerusalem and the Washing of the feet. It ends at the right above with Him arising from the tomb.
