The Presqu’île : Museum of Fine Arts

Initially an abbey of Benedictine nuns from noble descent, the sumptuous convent was converted in 1803 into an encyclopedic museum, which, according to the precepts in force at the time, housed the art objects confiscated by the revolutionaries in order to make them accessible to the greatest number.

Over time, the collections were enriched by donations from the State, patrons, public subscriptions and other bequests, to the point that the museum now boasts the title of Second Louvre!

Let’s enter this sacred palace which venerates today objects, sculptures, paintings having crossed the ages… Dazzling stroll guaranteed!
