LE PASSAGE POMMERAYE
There aren’t many European towns that can claim to have a more architecturally valuable shopping arcade. Built in 1843, it is still unchanged in the 21st century. Built on a steep incline the three floors are flanked by numerous shops and a monumental decorative staircase. It’s a haven for shoppers needing a fix and has inspired many artists, the film-maker Demy (Lola, Une chambre en ville) and the designer Tardi (The story of the unknown warrior).
