The Jacques-Coeur road - Tourism in the Cher

In the 15th century, Jacques Coeur, born in Bourg in 1400, a rich financier and money manager to King Charles VII, made his mark in Berry. The historic Jacques Coeur road, constructed in 1954, stretches from Ainay-le-Vieil in Cher to Gien in Loiret, and now includes sixteen sites that are all worth a visit. Ainay-le-Vieil Castle and its gardens, the Noirlac Cistercian Abbey, Meillant Castle, the Jacques-Coeur Palace in Bourges, Maupas Castle, La Chapelle-d'Angillon Castle and its museum devoted to the author of Le Grand Meaulnes, Alain-Fournier, La Verrerie Castle and the town of Aubigny-sur-Nère, are all exceptional places to see along the way. This is also an ideal opportunity to explore the pastoral countryside of Berry!
