La Cité de l'Or

La Cité de l'Or
This magnificent building is in Saint-Amand-Montrond. A bit of research discovered that the town/city has 12,000 inhabitants, and despite there being no gold mines, is the 3rd largest manufacture of gold jewellery in France, after Paris and Lyon.

This building known as 'La Cité de l'Or' (City of Gold) was completed in the year 2000 and houses a museum, workshops, lecture rooms etc. all dedicated to the manufacture of gold items.....
