Icône région actif Royal monastery of Brou in Bourg-en-Bresse

Favourite monument of the French

This royal monastery, built at the beginning of the 16th century on demand of Margaret of Austria, widow at the age of 24 of Philibert the Good, was designed to hold 3 sumptuous tombs for her husband, mother and herself. The monastery, made of several monastic buildings, is a great example of architecture. The varnished roof is a peak of the Gothic flamboyant style. In 2014, during a television show, the monastery of Brou was elected the favourite monument of the French. An undoubted proof of the magic of this site.
