The place

What's surprising about this staircase is not only its size (back in 1781 when it was build, it was one of the city's highest) or its stunning look, it's also the fact that it's actually a... double staircase.

Separated from only a few meters, the two staircases allowed people going down to avoid meeting those going up. It came handy when you know that the place used to be both a brothel and a huge 19-rooms dive.

To be able to see the stairs, you'll have to ring during business hours at the médiathèque which is located in the building.
