Welcome Reception

The welcome reception will take place on September 5 in the Musée Jean Lurçat, a museum of contemporary tapestry located in the Hôpital Saint Jean, a major Gothic-style edifice and one of the last remaining examples of a remarkably well-preserved large hospital complex. Built in the 12th century, it is today considered as one of the exceptional monuments from Angers’ heritage.

The Symposium Banquet will be organized on September 6 in the Château du Plessis-Bourré. Jean Bourré, Louis XI’s Minister of Finance, who was also the main confident of the King and his most faithful servant, built the present castle in less than 5 years, from 1468 till 1473.
