Villeneuve’s most important museum occupies a 14th-century “urban palace” constructed for a local cardinal. Since its designation as a museum in 1986, it’s been the richest repository of medieval painting and sculpture in the region. The remarkable Coronation of the Virgin, by Enguerrand Charonton, painted in 1453, depicts the denizens of hell supplicating the eternally calm mother of Christ. Equally important is a rare 14th-century ivory statue of the Virgin by an unknown sculptor; it’s one of the finest of its type anywhere. For French speakers, in-depth tours courtesy of knowledgeable guides are available at 3.80€ per person.
