John Baptist de La Salle was born there on April 30, 1651, as recalled by the statue placed in 1952 in a niche on the façade.
Since May 2015, a new museum tour has presented the history of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and their founder and reality in 2016.
The Hotel Saint Jean-Baptiste de La Salle was built in 1545 by a wealthy cloth merchant. You can read the various ornamental motifs where you can find the tastes of the Renaissance. On the interior façade (1556-1557), turrets and spiral staircases, crowned with an elegant bell tower, recall the castle of Blois.
