Bourg en Bresse is a lovely medieval town in France, about 70 Km north of Lyon. The old city center is home to some wonderful original medieval houses that are not only still standing, but have also been beautifully restored.
Non far away from the center are the Church and Monastery of Brou, which were built at the beginning of the 16th century by Margaret of Austria, daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I and Governor of the Habsburg Netherlands. The complex was designed as a dynastic burial place. More Info... There is a gallery about the monastery on this website. To view it, please follow the link from the menu, or click here.
