Of course, Angoulême is known throughout the world for its comic strip/comic book festival since 1974, which takes place every year in January, but the visits of the city don't end there. The historic center of Angoulême is a remarkable place in the city, especially with the presence of the majestic Cathedral of Saint Peter. The latter allows you to discover a sculpted facade with 70 characters from the Bible. Various museums also open their doors to you, including the Angoulême Museum, where you can discover the archaeology of Charente, but also its geological formation and various excavations carried out in the region. The Musée du Papier invites you to discover the entire paper tradition of the Charente. If you enjoy walking, we recommend that you go for a walk towards the remains of the ramparts of Angoulême. You can enjoy a splendid view of the Charente. Don't forget to visit the old chapel of the Cordeliers in the heart of the city where you can discover the tomb of Guez de Balzac created by a talented sculptor by the name of Baleyre.
