Fodor's Review

The former residence of Madame de la Peltrie, the laywoman who helped found the convent, is now a museum providing an informative perspective on the Ursuline nuns. It includes an exhibition on the nuns' work in education during the 19th and 20th centuries, and magnificent examples of ornate lace work, such as altar frontals with gold and silver threads intertwined with semiprecious jewels. The Ursulines are famous for their lace, and it took a nun nine years of training to attain the level of a professional lace embroiderer.
