Definitely worth stopping by this church to see the architecture and stained glass windows. There are explanations in English about the different glass window panels, which definitely contributes to better understanding of their historical significance! There's also a lovely peaceful garden beside the church that make for a delightful overall visit!

Created by Paul Feller s.J., A forward-looking Jesuit priest, the MOPO is dedicated to the passing on of knowledge and the promotion of apprenticeship. The museum boasts a collection of more than 10 000 tools distributed across 61 display cases in a remarkable scenography. At least as many beautiful tools are carefully stored in the museum's reserves. The contemporary power of the scenography adds to the story and power of each tool, painstakingly brought back to life. A place dedicated to the passing on of knowledge The 10 000 tools on show at the MOPO are unique witnesses of the intergenerational transfer of craftsmen. They invite the visitor to embark on a historic journey and are key to understanding trades today.

Not much of a big issue this piece of art but nice to walk around and look at the close area there. Nicely made, indeed.

Yet another French stunner with magnificent stained glass, lofty roof, and a gorgeous setting in a renovated square. A great place to visit in a gem of a city.

No cats here, just lots of pigeons and their droppings. Troyes is charming - the architecture is beautiful with the half-timbered houses and the many beautiful churches including Saint Pierre er Saint Paul Cathedral and Sainte Madeleine Church. Skip the Ruelle des Chats and hang out in one of Troyes' outdoor cafes instead.

The history of this Basilica is really tied up with the town. Read the general information about Pope Ubain IV outside as he founded this church and oversaw the design which is beautiful. Lovely flying buttresses and lace stone work. A must see. Information in both French and English.

Given the current interest in "natural medicines", it can be an eye-opener to consider the ghastly recipes our ancestors would readily absorb to cure their illnesses. I guess it's like homeopathy: a combination of inefffective potions and the placebo effect can still cure 50% of diseases, if they don't end up killing you.
My only advice is to display some of the samples of water-lillies, mastic and crayfish eyes in glass bottles rather than in discoloured plastic boxes. Otherwise the exhibition is quite comprehensive.

Find your favourite designer brands at reduced prices, all year round. Our beautiful setting close to Troyes centre, with cafes and restaurants, children's play area, free parking and more than 110 boutiques, we have something for everyone.
Yes, there's lots of shops here, but I suspect the prices are nothing special. And frankly it's has a rather desolate feel to it with a huge circle of shops and large numbers of cars in the middle. It has nothing on the open-air shopping 'villages' in the States or other western countries. You should note that there's very few eating options. But if shopping's your thing fill your boots.

This church took us by surprise as we entered, filled with bigger-than-life religious statues. It is more museum than church, with a collection of about 60 works collected from Champagne churches destroyed during the Revolution. It's a little out of the center but worth seeking out. I was enchanted with a sculpture of Ste-Barbe (St. Barbara) whose impudent glance showed the spunk Lou Grant would have hated!
