Long Description:
Built at the beginning of the 17th century, the Hotel Coupier de Maille was remodeled at the end of the 17th century and throughout the 18th century.

Its ground floor, with its old limestone mezzanines, has preserved its imposing double doorway, carved of walnut wood and decorated with grotesque half-lion half-human figures. Sculpted leaf ornaments crown the ensemble.

This is one of the most beautiful doors in the city.

The façade also features beautiful ironwork from the 18th century.

Edifiée au début du XVIIème siècle, l'hôtel Coupier de Maille fut remaniée à la fin du XVIIème et au cours du XVIIIème.

Son rez-de-chaussée en appareil de pierres calcaires avec anciens entresols a préservé son imposant portail à deux vantaux de noyer, ornés de grotesques mi hommes-mi lions et surmontés d'une imposte à rinceaux de feuillages.

Il s'agit de l'un des plus beaux portails de la ville.

Belles ferronneries XVIIIème en façade.
