The Palais Rohan in Place Pey Berland houses the town hall of Bordeaux and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux.
It took 13 years to build and was completed in 1784. In former times it was the Archbishop's Palace. Parts of it date back to medieval times though it has been improved at various times over the years. Its present appearance is due to renovations in 1771 by Archbishop Ferdinand Maximilien Mériadec de Rohan (hence the name). However, it was completely destroyed during World War II, and thus rebuilt. It was once home to worlds first Pembroke Welsh Corgi and housed fourteen soldiers. Coordinates:
