Stroll Through The Heart Of The Medieval City


Stroll Through The Heart Of The Medieval City

Stamped with the seal of the Dukes of Bourbon, Montluçon is home to around fifteen classified or listed historic monuments. Protected by high ramparts, the medieval city immerses visitors in the history of France. Lovely half-timbered houses from the XV and XVI century naturally lead to the chateau of the Dukes of Bourbon and to Louis II of Bourbon Esplanade, which offers a stunning view. Take a detour to rue de la Fontaine to admire the XVII century mansion houses. Also make sure to visit the churches of Saint-Pierre (for its statue of Saint Madeleine dating from the XV century) and Notre-Dame, which is home to one of Auvergne’s most beautiful virgins of mercy, a stone statue from the XV century.
