The irregular façade, which follows the course of the main road, contains mainly mullioned windows. The inner courtyard, flanked by a portico, repeats the same pattern as the Renaissance windows. The monumental first floor fireplace has an interlacing mantelpiece (1571) surmounting a frieze decorated with triglyphs resting on Doric columns. The Town restored the building at the end of the 1960s.

    Before the Revolution, the town of Les Baux was the centre of both Royal and seigneurial jurisdiction, whose seat was for a long time located in this building, built in 1499. It is where justice was served in the name of the sovereign. This building is now home to the Les Baux-de-Provence Tourist Office. The rampart against which the buildings were built was cut through in the 19th century to allow the opening of the current entrance to the town.

    Tarascon enjoyed many privileges under the reign of the Counts of Provence. In August 1272, an Act of Charles I of Anjou, the uncle of King René, authorised the founding of a Maison de la Monnaie (Mint), thus allowing Tarascon to mint money in the same way as Tours. Coins were minted here from 1387 to 1520. During this time, a real coin and a fake coin were nailed to the door, in order to inform the population and discourage forgers. The mint ceased operation between 1518 and 1526 and between 1543 and 1591, as its activity was contested by the Provence Parliament.
