Architectural Building
Monastère Royal de Brou is the burial place of French royalty, and the architecture of this structure recalls the ghosts of the royal personages enclosed in its crypts. You will discover an extravagant Gothic church with a mosaic tiled roof as the centerpiece of the monastic grounds. The church was commissioned in the 16th century by Maragaret of Austria, daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian. In 1922, the municipality installed an art collection in the monks' former quarters, where artwork from the 13th to the 20th century adorn the Renaissance walls.  Make Monastère Royal de Brou a centerpiece of your Bourg-en-Bresse vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bourg-en-Bresse family vacation planner.
