Bourges Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


A rich Roman city and then (late 14C) an important artistic centre thanks to its Capetian patron Jean de Berry, Bourges became the economic hub of Berry, and more recently an important place on the music scene, with the inauguration of Springtime in Bourges in 1977. Birthplace of prominent 15C merchant Jacques Coeur, and host to Calvin when a student, Bourges has many monuments: the old city ramparts, elegant hotels, gardens, religious buildings, and historic houses (both humble and grand).
