The Traditional Butchers' House

The Traditional Butcher's House is located in the picturesque Butchers' Quarters. It is one of 52 houses built in the early 13th century and is dedicated to the butchery trade. Nowadays, it is an eco-museum that shows the daily life of the families who lived and worked in this part of town: slaughtering, selling and cooking meats on the ground level, living upstairs, while hundreds of sheep and pig skins dried in the clerestory attic. Tools, pictures of the lively streets, written documents, furniture... a moving tribute to the intimacy of a community that was faithful to its traditions.

2018 : After the events that occurred at the beginning of the year, the Traditional Butcher's House is closed to the public until further notice.
