This house was built in the 17th century and the Barou du Soleil family made their home here in the 18th century, hence the name given to the house. The entrance at 2, Rue St. Georges leads into one of the most beautiful courtyards in the St. Georges district worth visiting. Each floor overlooks a large oval courtyard covered by a glass rood. The name Trinity refers back to the canons house of the Trinity which stood there in the 17th century. Two sheltered statuettes in the corners are dedicated to the Virgin and to Saint Peter. The place itself inspired Laurent Mourguet, the creator of Guignol, in his theatrical scenery. It is true that he lives just around the corner.
