This austere 18th-century building plays host to Bordeaux's town hall. The building took 13 years to construct (1771–1784). On two sides of the courtyard, low buildings link the main building to a colonnade. The rear façade is extended by two low baluster pavilions featuring bay windows adorned with garlands. Despite numerous renovations, the palace's original great staircase is still intact inside, as are a string of rooms on the ground floor, which boast of beautiful paneling, and a dining room decorated with trompe-l'œil figures. Two styles of decor, one Pompeian, the other older still, evoke the sheer refinement of Bordeaux interiors in this period.
