Built on the site of the former castle of the counts of Angoulême, the town hall is, along with Saint-Pierre cathedral, one of Angoulême's flagship monuments. Please note: 360 steps in the towers.

Formerly located at the intersection of three walls encompassing the rocky outcrop, the castle of the counts of Angoulême today consists of two towers. The keep, built at the end of the XNUMXth and the beginning of the XNUMXth century by the Lusignans, surprises with its polygonal shape. The round tower, birthplace of the sister of King François I, Marguerite d'Angoulême, was built in the XNUMXth century in the style of the time. It was in the XNUMXth century that Paul Abadie Fils erected the town hall on the site of the castle, assigning each wing a function transcribed by a symbolic architectural style. Take to the heights at the top of the towers for an exceptional panorama of the city and immerse yourself in history from the Middle Ages to the XNUMXth century.
