Charolles, Musée du Prieuré
The Priory Museum offers a collection of Charolles pottery, pieces of exceptional craftsmanship alongside popular items of an advertising or religious nature. Some forty canvasses by Jean Laronze (1852-1937), a Burgundy landscape artist reflect the feeling of nobility and calm that the landscapes of Saône-et-Loire inspired in him. The Priory Chapel has since 2006 held the collection of sculptures by René Davoine (1888-1962).
