Description

The presence of a market in herbs and medicinal plants in medieval times explains the name of this place.

You can see a mansion built there in the 10th century by the Clérieu family, with the aim of imposing its protection on the monastery of Saint-Barnard.
In 1360, a monetary workshop set up there for two centuries. In the 15th century, a fortified door fitted with machicolations reinforced the security of the building. The monogram which surmounts the door is formed by the initials of Marius Charvin, owner of the premises between 1875 and 1900.
