Not far from Louis XIV Square and facing the port, this Joanoenia residence received the infanta Maria Theresa of Spain when she married the king in 1660. The story goes that she only spent two nights there. Its pinkish facade of brick and stone recalls the charming Italian palaces. It was built thanks to the contribution of a wealthy shipowner, Johannot de Haraneder. From the residence, he could monitor the movement of his commercial and whaling vessels. His weapons are engraved above the front door. On the first floor, there is a beautifully decorated living room, in accordance with 17th century art. We are still trying to elucidate the meaning of the mysterious motifs discovered in 1995 on beams. A true architectural beauty, important and massive, the residence is a private property, listed as a Historic Monument Inventory since 1925.
