In an elegant square in the late 18th century there are some beautiful public buildings. In the Place de la Mairie you can find the city council. This building was constructed in the most elegant style, that of Louis XV. It is accompanied by an 18th century watchtower nearby. Inside lies an impressive staircase, waterfall and tapestries from the Royal Factory Fabric of France and the School of Bruges. All of them are hung on marmol boxes that go throughout the entire hallway and are sustained by huge stone pillars.
