Commissioned by Tristan de Salazar in 1475, Hotel de Sens is the oldest civil building from the end of Middle Ages in Paris.

The building was meant to become the residence of the Archbishop of Sens.

Queen Margot, Henri IV?s wife, came to live here in 1605.

The small but elegant garden was made in 1955 in renaissance style.
