About Us

GUIDED TOURS ONLY IN JULY AND AUGUST
The traditional butcher's house is open in summer from the beginning of July to the end of August, from Tuesday to Saturday and from 14 p.m. to 18 p.m.
Limited to 5 people.
A tour departs approximately every 30 minutes.

Located in the picturesque neighborhood of La Boucherie, it is one of 52 houses built at the beginning of the XNUMXth century dedicated to the profession of butchery.

Today, it is considered an eco-museum depicting the life of these families who slaughtered on the spot, sold and cooked on the ground floor, lived on the upper floors, while drying hundreds of sheep and pig skins in open attics. Tools, photos of the street in full activity, writings, furniture testify with emotion to the intimacy of a community faithful to its traditions, its faith and its profession.
