Abbey of St-Amand-les-Eaux

Two buildings have survived the dismantling of the Abbey, one is the abbatial Tower 82 metres high in which each of the five storeys uses a different architectural style. Inside the museum contains pottery from local manufacturers. The ascent up the tower allows you to appreciate the framework, the Clock movement and the bells, and there is a panorama not to be missed. In the Alderman's quarters the Watteau room has been decorated with allegorical canvases by the master's grandnephew.
