Will you be up to the challenge ?
  • The cannonball in the wall

    Will you be able to find it, on one of the walls of the Hôtel de Sens ? There is even a date written under it : July 28th, 1930, when it was fired during the Trois Glorieuses (French July Revolution).

Riddle solved ? Being there right now ? Have fun taking pictures and post them !

The place

It was originally owned by the archbishops of Sens (a city 120km south of Paris). The building, built between 1475 and 1507, is late Gothic and early Renaissance style. It is one of three medieval private residences remaining in Paris.

It now houses the Forney art library.
