We paid 8 euro 20 and spent almost an hour with the chef d'equipe who is fun and interesting and totally passionate about his work. Well worth it if you can understand a little French. This guy has worked there since the age of 16...More

At one time, this was a city of large copper production. After visiting the tourist information office, I was directed to go here to view copper production as it is today. An 8 euro entrance fee allowed me to view a movie on copper production...More

A surly girl took 8 euros each from us, led us through the workshop to a dingy room where she switched on a film from about 1980 which showed the various processes involved in making a copper pan. We then left but there was no...More

Very interesting view of genuine artisans making range of copper products from quality saucepans to baths. The video was informative. The price for the tour - like the items being themselves - was a bit on the pricey side. Still worthwhile though.

This is a wonderful experience. Beautiful saucepans still made by hand in the traditional manner. The factory established in 1850s or so has not changed much over the years with some of the machinery of a similar age! There is a very interesting film which...More

This was fairly interesting, but quite a 'cobbled together' sort of place, a very amateur affair. As a workshop, still in constant use, it is as you'd expect an industrial building, however, it just has the feel of somewhere where it was a major after...More

We tagged onto the tail end of a French -speaking tour, so didn't understand everything. The video had English translation, and we enjoyed walking around the foundry seeing the artisans at work. I shall always look for their trademark on copper pans in future! It...More
