The House known as ‘Duchess Anne’s House’ in Morlaix, Brittany, is a particularly well-preserved example of a lantern house, the lantern being the emblematic architectural principle of the town during the Renaissance.


Visitors will find the lantern, which is an interior covered courtyard, sheltering a monumental fireplace and a spiral staircase of elaborately sculpted oak, which enables movement between the front and rear rooms and the three floors.
