Discover the ancient and contemporary art of stained glass at Centre International du Vitrail. The colorful small collection has explanations of the methods used as well as the historical background of the pieces. The basement exhibition of modern stained glass contrasts with historic styles found in area cathedrals. Virtually unchanged since the 16th century, this center features eternal manufacturing methods used to create flat panes of glass. Watch artisans to learn how people throughout history, and today, cut, set, and solder glass to make windows.
