Equally important as seeing the cathedral, the nearby center offers a great insight into the medieval culture and glass arts. We were impressed by an expedition featuring "light" & modern stain glass artist.

How stained glass windows are made and repaired, plus some amazing old examples are on the first floor. The basement holds the surprise! Modern windows designed by young artists for churches all over france and Belgium-fabulous!
