History of the Christmas tree

Ten Christmas trees hanging from the ceiling of an amazing gothic church : this is what you see when you enter Saint-Georges during Christmas time. An unique opportunity to discover the evolution of this world-renowned tradition.

Hanging under the arches of the nave of Saint-Georges church, ten Christmas trees retrace the most important stages in the evolution of Christmas tree decoration, from the 16th century to the present day.
