La Maison de Louis XIV

Louis was only here for 40 days. As part of the Pyrenees Treaty, he had to marry the Infanta Maria-Teresa. This was the town.

The house was built by a wealthy ship owner, and still remains in the famiky to this day.

The tour was in French, bien sur. There was an oval portrait in the boudoir of Louis. He really was quite handsome. They were both just 22 years old at the time of their marriage.
