Pavillon Stéphane Hessel

in Gaillard

Gratuit
  • The suburban building was built above vaulted caves dating back to the Middle Ages. It is used today as an annex to the town hall and hosts occasional exhibitions.

  • Dating from the early 19th century, the pavilion is located on the site of the original tower. The building was occupied by Jean Naly during his term as Mayor, from 1888 to 1893. It was then the residence of Antoinette Delorme, a nun in Vallard, who sold it in 1923 to Louis-Alphonse, Prince of Bourbon.

    In 1993, the Town Council decided to acquire the castle, and it became the town hall. A rose garden surrounds it.
    In 2015, the 'Castle' was given the name of Pavillon Stéphane Hessel, in honour of the writer and resistant who had come to Gaillard in 2010 for a conference.
    It now hosts temporary exhibitions and the various rooms are available for rent for private events.
