In partnership with the Association of guides interpreters of the Tarn.
Sainte-Cécile is the largest entirely painted cathedral in Europe, like that of Parma in Italy… Evidenced by its walls and its vault covered with frescoes, distemper and trompe-l'oeil ornaments. But how to navigate through all this pictorial opulence? Using magnifying glasses and mirrors, let yourself be guided between hell and paradise, track down angels and demons, prophets and apostles, virtues and deadly sins, plant and geometric patterns. With an eye on the lookout, embark on a colorful journey, over the brush.
