Shoe Repair Museum

In the heart of the old town, the museum reveals the different facets of an artisanal past that has marked the history of the village.

Since the Middle Ages, Alby-sur-Chéran has experienced intense activity linked to the leather trades. For several centuries, the shoemaking became the main resource of the town and provided a living for a large part of its inhabitants.
Nowadays, the Place du Trophée and its arcades under which the stalls were nestled, retain traces of this long artisanal tradition.
