Visit Bourges

Bourges ligger söder om Orleans, romarna kallade staden Avaricum. Bourges är en gammal gallisk stad byggd på en kulle med utsikt över de träskiga slätterna runt “Marais”. Den antika staden försvarades av massiva stenmurar upp till 40 meter tjocka, vilket Julius Caesar (100-44 f.Kr.) beskrev och hänvisade till staden som “mycket vacker” (“Pulcherrima fere totius Galliae urbs” – “En av de vackraste städer i nästan hela Gallien ‘).

Staden är mest känd för sin katedral, även om staden också har andra attraktioner, särskilt ett överflöd av byggnader som byggdes under åren efter “den stora branden i Bourges” 1487. Bourges katedral är ett skyddat UNESCO-kulturarv och tornet och krypten är franska nationalmonumentet. Enligt historien började byggandet av den gotiska katedralen 1195 på order av ärkebiskop Henri de Sully (1184-1199). Liksom andra gotiska kyrkor led Bourges katedral allvarliga skador, särskilt under religiösa krig och den franska revolutionen.

Bland andra byggnader finns Jacques Coeur-palatset, byggt 1450 och känt för sin gotiska arkitektur. Grunden är gallo-romerska murar och fasaden är som ett feodalt slott på västsidan, samtidigt som den presenterar en elegant struktur på östra sidan. Slottet har en rik dekoration av symboler. De två figurerna som ser ut från de falska fönstren på baldakinens sidor representerar troligen Jacques Coeur och hans fru.
