Museum of Art and History

The old Carmelite convent, founded in 1625; is now home to a museum. It contains a variety of objects, ranging from archeological vestiges to the reconstitution of a 17 and 18C apothecary's shop. A number of objets d'art retrace the everyday life of the Carmelites. The 2nd floor is devoted to the Commune de Paris episode in 1871.
