A know-how of excellence for a fun and surprising visit !
In a very attractive workshop from XIX century, some traditional techniques of moulding with a base of clay, of horse manure and goats hair mixed with modern technology like analysing the resonance to check the sound of the bells. The new bells of Notre Dame in Paris were made here. At the end of the visit you can ring the bells with a mallet to create some melodies or listen to the range of little bells. This educational and fun visit ends in the themed shop where you will find the best of the local crafts: bells and hand bells, weather vanes, copper cookware and local products...
