This is the unpretentious little Mairie (Mayor's office) in Marcilhac on the River Cele in southwest France.
During World War II, it was the scene of the one of the maquis' first theatrical gestures of turning the tables on the occupier: on November 11, 1943 – Armistice Day – Jean-Jacques Chapou's (see small blue plaque on the wall)group briefly occupied the village and laid a wreath at the war memorial which is immediately opposite the Mairie.
