Aubigny-sur-Nère, City of the Stuarts...

One foot in Sologne and the other towards the slopes of Sancerre, Aubigny is in a way a "capital" of the North of the Cher. Superbly flowery in the green setting of the Nère valley, Aubigny is proud of its national label "4 flowers".

Unmissable stop on the Jacques Coeur Route and a veritable open-air museum, Aubigny still bears witness to the Scottish imprint which has forged its history and whose originality rarely leaves you indifferent. No wonder the city was awarded in 2018 the label "Small City of Character" enhancing its rich architectural heritage.

A place of memory for the Auld Alliance, this incredible love story between France and Scotland which culminated in the reign of Marie Stuart, Aubigny is rich in an exceptional architectural heritage of sixteenth century half-timbered houses. Its castle, haunted by the memory of the knights of the Auld Alliance, by the marvelous silhouette of Louise de Keroualle, Duchess of Portsmouth and Aubigny, favorite of the king of England Charles II and by the shadows of the Dukes of Richmond, Lennox and Aubigny, brings together the memory of this small Scottish city.

Every year, since 1990 around July 14, the city reconnects with its Scottish past during the Franco-Scottish Holidays. The sound of bagpipes resonates and pipe bands invade the City of the Stuarts! Tens of thousands of people descend on the city to fervently celebrate Aubigny's centuries-old friendship with the Scots.

Today, Aubigny is a dynamic city where life is good. A center of excellence in the mechanical industry, it has managed to preserve a welcoming and lively historic and commercial center. Aubigny happily combines its past and its future, between Berry and Sologne.
