PRESTIGIEUX HÔTELS PARTICULIERS DU XVIIIE SIECLE : HOTEL DE CLEVANS

Built from 1739 onwards for Joseph Lebas de Clévans, Councillor at the Franche Comté Parliament, this mansion is the work of Jean Querret, architect and engineer of the Ponts-et-Chaussées. The architecture of this mansion is reminiscent of the work of the architect Jean Courtonne on the Hôtel Matignon around 1722. It came into the possession of the Germigney family and was rented to the army in 1818 as its headquarters. State property since 1854, the Hôtel de Clévans is the residence of the General Commander of the Besançon square. It has hosted political and military personalities at various times, the Duc d’Aumale, Baron Marulaz and General de Lattre de Tassigny. From 1943 to 1944 the building was the headquarters of the Gestapo.

Prices: €8 – €6 for students, under 18s, members of the Tourist Office (on presentation of a card), disabled people. Free for under 12s and jobseekers.
