L'Ecoute

It is said to have a Gothic plan and Renaissance decoration.

It took 105 years to complete: 1532-1637.

The gigantic head-hand sculpture, L'Ecoute, was made by Henri de Miller.

A friend of mine showed me a postcard of this giant head years ago, and I always wanted to see it. We walked two rounds and finally figured out HOW to get to it from main roads. It is a hidden treasure.

Place for relax

The little girl chased around of a little bird.

At noon where we went there, many people took their lunch here; several roller skaters showed off their tricks while carrying a pack of baquetts on thir back.
