Date: Tuesday 29 nov 2022 - Thursday 2 Feb 2023

French guided tour. Putti, marbles and gilding, or twisted columns, religious art of the 17th century must teach, move and convince the population in reaction to Protestant criticism.

The Chapelle des Penitents Blancs hides an exceptional decoration in gilded wood, a remarkable painted coffered ceiling and
works painted with Italian influences and Flemish. A member will introduce you the brotherhood, its history and its missions current.
The circuit continues to the church St-Matthieu, the only building in the city to have retained almost all of the decor furniture from the 17th century including spectacular altarpiece of the high altar and many tables.
