    An inscription placed above the central arcade, facing the entrance, is dedicated to the intendant Foucault, recognized as a benefactor of the order. On the walls, the religious maxims are vestiges of the time when the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of Refuge had founded an establishment for young girls there (1841). Since their departure, the cloister has housed the music conservatory and various municipal services.
