The Gribaldi home holds the city's historical archives and a temporary exhibition hall and is one of the last vestiges of old town.
Built during the Renaissance, the building has mullioned windows topped with ogee lintels, a wooden gallery replaced during the 2013 renovation-extension and a beautiful stone spiral staircase inside. Built along the ramparts surrounding the city, it was probably owned by Vespasien Gribaldi—a friend of Francis de Sales and archbishop of Vienna, France; hence the name.. It was possibly an annexe of his nearby manor, located at the angle of the street above.
