St-Claude Icons

St Pierre Cathedral stands out between the surrounding mountains. It is architecturally, the most interesting building in Saint-Claude.
In the center of town, St-Claude has erected a gigantic sculpture of a pipe to glorify the pipe making, the first industry established in St-Claude in 1854. Pipe making, together with diamond cutting, gave St-Claude worldwide fame.
