Cathedral of St Louis

It was devastated by a hurricane in 1678. Fortunately, Colbert's wife was from Blois and the Minister had it rebuilt in a heavy, Gothic style. Since the end of 2000, the cathedral has been literally illuminated by the stained-glass windows, verging on an almost refined simplicity and representing a veritable book of glasswork, made by Jean Mauret, master of stained-glass and designed by the Dutch artist, Jan Dibbets, creator of the «Méridienne Arago» in Paris.
