Fodor's Review

St-Lô has the perfect French provincial art museum. Its halls are airy, seldom busy, not too big, yet full of varied exhibits—including an unexpected masterpiece: Gombault et Macée, a set of nine silk-and-wool tapestries woven in Bruges around 1600 relating a tale about a shepherd couple, exquisitely showcased in a special circular room. Other highlights include brash modern tapestries by Jean Lurçat; paintings by Corot, Boudin, and Géricault; and court miniatures

by Daniel Saint. Photographs, models, and documents evoke St-Lô's wartime devastation.
