Bibendum
This well laid-out treasury includes some exceptional pieces including a sardonyx vase decorated with scenes from Greek mythology, the Merovingian case of Teudéric, made out of gold and pearls, the 9C ewer, supposedly Charlemagne's, and the remarkable tomb of St Maurice. Other objects, such as the reliquary given by St Louis, complete this wonderful collection, one of the most important in Christendom.
