L'hôtel de Than

Rue du Maréchal Leclerc

Built a little before l'Hôtel d'Escoville, circa 1520-1525, this hotel also attests to how Caen was during the Renaissance. The characters of its flamboyant style are recognisable thanks to the pitches of windows decorated with crockets and animals. Today, the hotel houses an Information and Recruitment Centre for the National Gendarmerie.
