Hôtel de Marisy

Add to bookmark


In 1486, the de Marisy family acquired a half-timbered house here, which was reduced to ashes by the great fire of 1524.

Mayor of Troyes from 1522 to 1528, Claude de Marisy had it rebuilt in stone, adding an elegant Renaissance-style corner turret.
The hotel bears the family coat of arms, including that of his wife Michelle Molé, another of the town's great names.

The rue Charbonnet façade features a carriage entrance with pilasters, topped by a triple window. Spanish-style ironwork, in hammer-twisted bars, protects the bays. On the rue des Quinze-Vingts side, you can admire the wide Renaissance chimneys and the multicolored rhombuses of the glazed tile roof.
The building was restored in 1872 by architect Eugène Millet, a disciple of Viollet le Duc.
