HIGHLIGHTS​

 

Maison de Têtes

Built at the beginning of the 16th century by Antoine De Dorne, this old building features a façade decorated with a large number of sculpted heads.

This Renaissance building houses the municipal department known as “Valence, City of Art and History.” Other houses of heads can be found in France, for instance in Colmar and Béziers.

Kiosk Peynet

Listed as French Historic Monument since 1982, this bandstand is the symbol of the city of Valence. It was designed by an architect named Poitoux in 1890 and is located on the Champ de Mars esplanade, facing Jouvet Park.

It gets its name from Peynet's drawings depicting two lovers listening to the music coming from the bandstand. Today, a golden heart placed under the dome commemorates this event.

Cathedral of Saint-Apollinaire

The Romanesque cathedral is the oldest building in the city, dating back to the late 11th century.

It is found in the historic city centre, at the top of the city.
