Take a stroll into the courtyards here and you'll find a superb facade in front of you with an ornate flaming sun motif. In the second yard, on the wall behind you as pass the arch is this rather strange sundial engraved on the wall. It uses a hole drilled in the plate on the apex of the tripod to let the light and not a shadow, to tell the time.

Nearest metro is Pont-Marie.
