The Michelin Guide's review
The town hall, which became the seat of the People's Committee, was the subject of heated controversy during its construction (1901-08). A triumphant symbol of the colonial empire, the "cream puff" design of its façade with a pastel yellow belfry, embellished with bas-reliefs and Corinthian columns, must have seemed highly unusual. It has since established itself as one of the emblems of the city.
