Hôtel de Sens
and the Forney Art Library
Built originally for the archbishops of Sens in the thirteenth century,
this hôtel was rebuilt completely
by Archbishop Tristan de Salazar between 1498 and 1518.
Although there have been many modifications
over the past five hundred years,
"it remains a rare survivor of late medieval-civil architecture,
an example of a semi-fortified manoir dressed up in the Flamboyant style."
