European Heritage Days
At Saint-Louis during the week-ends glassworkers are not working, but the furnaces are never turned off. Keeping with tradition, each furnace is blessed before its first crystal production. As the lungs of the manufacture, its rumbles keep spreading through the valley since 1586. Through a guided tour, discover the pots furnaces devoted to the color crystal and the B4, the new fusion tool of the Manufacture. This one is a tank furnace devoted to clear high quality of crystal.
