Old City Hall or Hotel Rouvil
The hotel Rouvil belonged to an old family of Bonnieux. This particular hotel became the new home commute in 1859, common house originally installed rue Droite "steep and narrow street that is most convenient to serve the population and service needs. For similar reasons, the town hall was transferred down the village in 2006.
A tower was to be built at the judicial court to receive a new clock. This project is dropped in favor of the hotel Rouvil, the front door northwest clock and a little steeple with wrought iron campanile. The wedding hall is an ancient ceremonial room. A cave carved into the rock shows to be more ancient. After a broad staircase, a portal to the ornate entablature, flanked by two pilasters and topped by a pediment cornice, opens onto a small courtyard. Front of the hotel, a mansion, probably built on a medieval foundation, was the object of many changes over the centuries (gate in the arch received a Florentine framing treatment).
The calade stairs were restored in 2000 and is the high road to access, with great difficulty, to the church and the cemetery! In Bonnieux, they said: "the dead bury the living!"
Erected by Mairie de Bonnieux. (Marker Number 7.)
