Rue de la Poterne and its house
What's interesting in this street is this wood framing house with a stony ground floor, which was raised in the second half of the 16th century.
It was probably the house of a rich merchant, because it has a gable.
The façade overlooking the street and its gable were the most visible parts of a house.
So rich people decorated them, in order to make their fortune obvious.
Here, the ochre façade distinguished from other houses!
