    During the Renaissance, the town experienced a period of relative prosperity which encouraged families to build or rebuild large residences. The result was a wave of creativity heavily inspired by Antiquity.
    The Hôtel de Donines, built at the end of the 16th century, has three floors surmounted with an attic and is a wonderful example of this.

The entire façade was restored in 2007.
