Châteauroux is the capital of the Indre department in central France and the second-largest town in the province of Berry, after Bourges. Its residents are called Castelroussins.Geography and climateChâteauroux temperatures range from an average January low of 0.8°C to an average August high of 25.1°C.HistoryThe old town, close to the river, forms a nucleus around which a newer and more extensive quarter, bordered by boulevards, has grown up; the suburbs of St. Christophe and Déols lie on the right bank of the Indre. The castle from which the city takes its name was built in the latter part of the 10th century by Raoul, prince of Déols. During the Middle Ages it was the seat of a seigniory, which was raised to the rank of countship in 1497. In 1616, when it was held by Henry II, prince of Condé, it was raised to the rank of duchy. In 1736 it returned to the crown, and was given to Marie Anne de Mailly-Nesle, duchess of Châteauroux, by Louis XV in 1744. The present Château Raoul housing the préfecture offices dates from the 15th century.AwardsChâteauroux is one of the communes awarded the grand prize by the Concours National des Villes et Villages Fleuris, a beautification initiative begun in 1959.Sights Château Raoul Musée Bertrand Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires Public Garden and the Jardins des Cordeliers Le Parc de loisirs de Belle-Isle Château de Bouges Convent of the Cordeliers Church of St. Martial Church of St. André Church of Notre Dame Musée du Compagnonnage Quartier St. Christophe La Prairie St. Gildas Equinoxe Le Tarmac
