Menoc Hotel


2 Rue Emilien Traver


The Menoc Hotel is a noble town house, the oldest mention of which dates from the early 14th century, when it belonged to the Cousdun family, whose coat of arms can be seen on the flamboyant lintel of the south tower door. From the medieval period, only the two Gothic towers and the wall joining them, pierced with mullioned windows, remain.

The town bought and demolished the houses along the Grand'Rue and the ruelle de la Traverse in order to isolate the building and create a square. The style used is neo-gothic: the taste is like an ideal Middle Ages. The mansion was transformed into a court in the 19th century. We find the attributes of Justice (the scales, the sceptre and the sword) to remind us of the building's function. Inside, the "salle des pas perdus" (literally "hall of the lost steps", a waiting hall) and the courtroom still welcome visitors, while in 2009 the Palais de Justice closed its doors.
