Villedieu-les-Poeles Jun 08, 2012
This town in Normandy contains a number of interesting attractions. Among them are a bell foundry and a lace museum.

The bell foundry is one of only two that still cast the large bells needed for cathedrals. At present they are working on a complete set of new bells for Notre Dame in Paris to commemorate the cathedral's 850 years. These bells will be installed in 2013.

The lace museum is also quite interesting, with exhibits of many types of lace that were made by the women of the village in the past. At the end of the tour one of the museum staff demonstrates how lace is made.
