The Crier's House

Exhibition place in town
Do you know this building with an enigmatic head at one of its corners that seems to be screaming?
According to oral tradition, it was under this one that the public crier announced the set prices of goods and other legal declarations.

Did you know that?

The crier will meet you every Saturday at 11:44 a.m., to announce the city’s cultural program!

At 11:44 a.m. precisely, in reference to the founding date of the city of Montauban in 1144.

With passion, he makes you discover the cultural heritage of our city, but also his mysterious trunk!

Catch it, it contains objects that are at first sight unusual or intriguing, but which all refer to a beautiful Montalban history.

Little ones and big ones, the Crier is waiting for you!

A little history

2 Rue Gillaque is an 18th-century building overlooking the beautiful place Nationale, which retains some nice older remnants, including a 15th-century turret and a 17th-century gallery.
