This is pretty much the main thing to see in the town of Annecy and not only was it closed, but it was also covered with scaffolding. A big disappointment.

There is a little bridge in front of this that you can get some great pictures of this building and the beautiful buildings around it. Note: In October 2016, this building was being renovated with parts of it covered in scaffolding.
