Trip Planner: Europe / France / Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes / Ain / Bourg-en-Bresse / Monastere Royal de Brou
Monastere Royal de Brou is the burial place of French royalty, and the architecture of this structure recalls the ghosts of the royal personages enclosed in its crypts. You will discover an extravagant Gothic church with a mosaic tiled roof as the centerpiece of the monastic grounds. The church was commissioned in the 16th century by Maragaret of Austria, daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian. In 1922, the municipality installed an art collection in the monks' former quarters, where artwork from the 13th to the 20th century adorn the Renaissance walls.

Magnificent is probably the term most used to describe this superb building where an incredible peace reigns, a serenity emerges from these places and makes you forget the worries of everyday life.

The outside does not prepare you what's in store inside - the architecture of the church is amazing, and the three successive cloisters are incredible. Count on spending at least 90 minutes there...

Great way to spend half a day or even a full day. Beautiful architecture and tombs, not to mention a lot of interesting history. Highly recommend.
Took my breath away. The artisitic detail on the choir area, the beautiful stained glass windows (whose features included "textured" glass, making the clothes look like velevet or silk!), and the prominent paintings by famous artists, were all so fantastic. This place will delight and surprise any visitor.
