La maison du crieur

The crier's house

at Montauban
  • The Saturday auction is suspended until further notice.

    2 rue Gillaque is an 18th century building retaining some beautiful older vestiges, notably a 15th century turret and a 17th century gallery. Many Montalbanais know him for the enigmatic head which decorates one of the angles and which seems to cry. The city wished to keep the premises on the ground floor and baptized it the Maison du crieur.
    An exhibition space open to everyone.

    On request, the puzzle box.
