Created on Bonaparte's orders.

Bordering the town hall gardens, the Fine Arts Museum (Le Musée des Beaux-arts) has been established in the former archiepiscopal palace, also known as Palais Rohan, created in the 18th century by the archbishop of Bordeaux, Ferdinand-Maximilien Mériadec de Rohan.

The museum was created in 1801 on the order of Napoléon Bonaparte, who loaned paintings to fifteen large French cities, providing royal or private collections.

The museum also contains a vast collection of ancient paintings, and a significant gathering of Italian, Dutch and Flemish paintings from the 17th century.
