Thaumassière townhouse's funny stones
This house was raised in the 15th century by César de La Thaumassière, king of France Henri III’s doctor.
His son was born here, in 1631: Gaspard, a famous historian...
This house really looks like a small castle, with its court full of wisteria (planted in the beginning of the 20th c.).
On the front, we can see the family’s coat of arms, and a funny little detail: a stone coming from the Parisian former fortress of La Bastille, destroyed in 1789 during the French Revolution!
Now, look at the roof: funny sculptures are looking at us.
A musician and boozers sleeping on their mugs... Sancerre is the city of wine, after all!
