The building itself is organized around a courtyard with a well. The west facade was pierced by windows mullions, topped by an important decoration of mouldings. The angle of this façade and the North facade, there is a hexagonal tower with a spiral staircase.Arcaded loggias allow traffic on the ground floor and the floors.The façade North, built in 1587, has favorable Renaissance characteristic décor.
