Palais Jacques Coeur, Bourges

4.4
Considered a masterpiece of late Gothic architecture, Palais Jacques Coeur is considered one of the finest and most magnificent civic buildings from the 15th century. Great care was taken to make the palace comfortable, hence the addition of modern plumbing and hygienic washrooms with flushing toilets. The private apartments and reception rooms have richly carved and decorated fireplaces. Take the time to explore the different sections that are uniquely linked by an arrangement of passages, spiral staircases, and galleries--you might just find a secret passageway leading to a mysterious destination.

  • The Palace is well preserved, has a lot of history (so does its creator Jacques Coeur), the rooms have a lot of different styles, and there are even a couple of fun surprises.

  • What say more on this sumptuous palace Jacques Cœur. This Palace is a jewel of the renaissance with a lot of symbolism through the characters and finely carved designs. As for the Interior, you will not be less dazzled by the parts all more beautiful than the other. Not to mention the exceptional boat hull framing. Flipping! As for the night concerts through the excellent partnership of the municipality. Besides light sets that are necessary over the years through many historical monuments which punctuate the old city of Avaricum.
