Les Compagnons du Tour de France: mind and hand

The building of cathedrals required expert and skilful "œuvriers". Since the Middle Ages, to learn a trade and become accustomed to the techniques, apprentices have traveled the country from master to master, forging an incomparable know-how. Together, they become "companions". In Tours, a museum presents the finest works of these stonecutters, carpenters and ironworkers. Between dedication to fine work and moral perfection.
