    Rang de Beauregard

    Rang de Beauregard

    Opposite the New Stock Exchange stands a row of houses built in 1687 in the typical beautiful French style. Notice the toller on the house on the left corner.
    Not to be seen on the pic, but you can still see some canon bullets that are stuck in the fa├žade.

    Cannonballs in the Rang de Beauregard

    can you see the cannonballs ??

    One of the fabulous buildings located in the Place du Theatre is the Rang de Beauregard.

    It is an ornate terrace of 14 three-storey houses and shops that were built in 1687.

    The most amazing thing about the Rang de Beauregard is that if you look closely you can still see some of the cannonballs embedded in the building from the seige of 1792.

    Amazing!

    OLD BUILDINGS

    by mel_bee Written Mar 27, 2004

    I was impressed by some of the old buildings around the city, this one is a traditional shop front near the stock exchange.
