Historical archives from the ICCAn ArkeoTopia ambassador will enrich your guided tour with historical and archaeological information.

At the Irish Cultural Center, you will discover the history of the Irish College building (Collège des Irlandais), the decorated chapel, the many statues and iconographic elements on site, as well as the resources of the multimedia library, which is accessible free of charge all year round. We will tell you about the Irish College’s heritage library, built between 1772 and 1775, which holds three illuminated manuscripts from the 15th -16th centuries, and has been undergoing a major preservation and restoration project since 2007 (1). We will finish the tour at a pub where we can continue the discussion over a drink, provided by ArkeoTopia.
