The museum in Angouleme (CNBDI) is about the 9th Art: comics. So it's fun to go and learn about all your childhood heroes, but there are some good comic books for adults too! You should then come along in January as the whole town will be celebrating the International Festival of the Comics. Lot's of animations!
Address: Angouleme city centre
Directions: CNBDI, it's famous here, pretty central. There's a cinema in the building called "salle Nemo" which shows good movies and cartoons!

nothing super inside, but outside it s very pleasant and the architecture is super
the first thing to be done before examining the facade is to ignore all superstructures including the gable and bell turrets which were added by Abadie. It s not possible to tell exactly how the facade was finished off especially as the upper parts were altered during the XVIth century
originally the skeleton on the facade appears to have consisted of hight arcades flanking the portal
Under the inspiration of Bishop Girad yhe austerity was banished and he introduced a whole iconographical programme. The tympanum together with the scultures of St Georges and St Martin at the base of the facade are modern.At first sight the iconography appears rather complex since the theme of the Ascencion is linked with that of the Last Judgement. We can only interpret the ideas of the artist by seeing in the history of human destiny as revealed to us in the Holy Scripture.

Well, you could stop by and see 'the Kennedy'. Drinks are more expensive here than on average - if I were still working there, I'd knock a few cents of the price for you.
