The Saint-Pierre d'Angoulême cathedral is remarkable both for its Romanesque architecture dating from the XNUMXth century and for its Treasure created by the visual artist Jean-Michel Othoniel.

Since 2016, the Cathedral Treasury has revealed in three rooms part of the important collection of religious objects from the diocesan repository. Colored blown glass is at the heart of the Angoumois project. It is the artist's favorite material. Indeed, he composes most of his creations with magical and baroque accents. The stained glass windows in blue and gold tones diffuse a colored light which contributes to the dreamlike atmosphere of the place.
Each room of the Treasure corresponds to a theme: the Lapidary, the Commitment, the Marvelous.
