Overview
More
The royal church of Brou in Bourg-en-Bresse was built between 1505 and 1532 by Margaret of Austria as a monument to the memory of her husband, Philibert the Fair, Duke of Savoy. It is a masterpiece of the Flamboyant Gothic style and is richly ornamented with magnificent tombs, a fine altarpiece, statues and choir stalls that testify to the artistry of 16th century Flemish craftsmen. A museum is housed in the monastic buildings.

While the cathedral is bare, the alcoves contain exquisite marble carvings - some on tombs, some on other decoration. This is worth a trip from Lyon.

I love romanesque French churches and this one did not disappoint.
