An excursion to Charles de Gaulle birthplace museum is promising too. Atmosphere of the early 19th century is accurately preserved in a beautiful old mansion; its collection can compare to exhibitions of eminent museums. Next to the mansion is an old factory building, which was recently converted into a historical museum.
In the center of the historic district is a lovely L'Hotel de Ville. The first city hall was built on this site in the 19th century, but in 1916 it was completely destroyed by great fire. Construction of the new building was completed in 1926. The height of the tower is 105 meters. All visitors can climb to the observation deck on the top of the building; it offers unique panoramas. The interior of the building is unique too. You can see beautiful paintings and frescoes by contemporary artists in its corridors and halls.
