Palais Jacques Coeur, Bourges
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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. With our custom trip planner, Bourges attractions like Palais Jacques Coeur can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

For the curious, I absolutely recommend reading of a social science book written by my former associate prof of history at high school Alfred de Vigny, Loches, on the history of hygiene in France: "Deliver us from evil!", by Chantal Beauchamp, doctor of the EHESS. And with all the delicacy of spirit as a bonus... 😎show original
