    Description :

    “On July 28, 1830, a stray cannonball pierced the eastern façade of Hôtel de Sens, lodging itself permanently in the wall. Built originally for the archbishops of Sens in the fourteenth century, this hôtel was remodelled completely by Archbishop Tristan de Salazar. The building has seen many more changes since but its façade still has the cannonball.”
