One of the most impressive houses in the city was recently opened to the public after extensive renovation. The Arthur's Court, named for King Arthur, was founded as a meeting place for the town's wealthiest businessmen and leading dignitaries. The house dates from the 14th century, but was remodeled several times, including once in the 19th century when it was given its neo-Gothic look following the vogue of the time. One of the highlights inside is a 9m-high (30-ft.) Renaissance tiled oven. The exterior was demolished in World War II, but many of the interior pieces had been removed beforehand and survived the fighting.
