The Museum of Organs is a gallery of the most beautiful instruments in Europe dating back hundreds of years, and modern pipe organs as well. This picture is of the cathedral of Lavaur, Haut-Garonne, France.
The organ dates from 1523. The case, which was built by the carver Nicolas Bachlier, is one of the most luxurious examples from 16th century in Southern France. The present instrument was built by A. Cavaillé-Coll in 1876.

I was going in a totally different direction, when I saw Museum of Organs. Thought it might be a tribute to old porn stars.

Actually, I worked in the pipe organ field for a time. Very intricate and beautiful machines.
