THE TOURIST OFFICE DOVECOTE

GRENADE

Description

Discover the imposing pigeon house of the Tourist Office, located in the heart of the Bastide of Grenade-sur-Garonne.

In the public garden of the Castelbajac street is a majestic dovecote adjoining the Tourist Office installed in an old bourgeois residence. On the courtyard side, its half-timbered facade dates from the end of the 15th century. The architecture of this pigeon house is called "en Randière": it is made of a row of protruding bricks or glazed terracotta tiles that surround the pigeon house and prevent rodents from entering inside.
