Museum of the Cathedral Treasure

Musée du Trésor de la Cathédrale Ancienne Manécanterie ©
The museum is located in the choir school, one of the rare 11th-c. civil monuments remaining in the region, which was originally used as the refectory for the chapter members. It exhibits a large collection of religious items, clothing, etc.
This museum presents the collections of Cardinal Fesch and Cardinal Louis de Bonald: objects from the 9th to 19th centuries (Byzantine capitals and chests, enamels from Limousin, silver and gold work, etc.), 13th to 19th century liturgical clothing, and a collection of 17th century tapestries from Aubusson and Flanders.
