Antique dealers areas
Antique Dealers district
The Antique Dealers district starts at the north-west corner of the market square (corner of rue Ducis and rue Pourvoirie), and is clustered around the old Hôtel du Bailliage. This elegant building, built in 1724, housed the judicial district court, of which Versailles was the center, with, in its basement, the corresponding prison cells. Whence the name Passage de la Geôle (jail) of the passageway beside it.
This hotel and the picturesque network of courtyards and narrow streets surrounding it are now occupied by many renowned antique shops.
Most Quartier de la Geôle antique dealers are open on weekends.
