Similar to the Maison du G. Veneur, the Maison du Grand Fauconnier also has twp levels of traceried double or triple windows in ogival pairs, but without another dormer level above.At one time the projecting roof was decorated with images of falcons, from which its name derives. The building houses the Tourist Office and two small museums but our time schedule and the rain did not allow time for entry.
