What to do, what to see?
Angoulême, Town of Art and History, is a town of the Middle Ages and the 19th century. Its paper-making history has left a distinct taste for the visual arts. The Ninth Art - animation - has made Angoulême its home. Angoulême and the comic strip, a story reflected on the walls of the town where various authors have drawn their heroes and their universe !
On the right bank stands the quarter of St-Jacques with its shops, its open air market and mooring facilities for river boats. On the left bank, history has left its mark in the old cobbled streets. Pass through the old gates to the town before exploring the 12th century church of St-Léger with its splendid rose window, the Récollets convent and the Lieutenance, a fine half-timbered town house. The walls of the town appear to be covered with black velvet...
The white stone is blackened by the evaporating alcohol, called the angels' share. Not to be missed: the Château des Valois, of which the oldest parts date from the 13th century, is the headquarters of a major cognac house.
