Fine Arts Museum

Housed in the old bishop's palace, the museum is set on the first terrace of the gardens. It holds a eclectic mix of works from different periods, including an exceptional collection of large-format enamelled plaques of the 12 apostles, by Léonard Limosin. You will also see, in a completely different vein, some fine old musical instruments (spinets and harpsichords). The new rooms house the modern art collections (Soutine, Vlaminck).
