Meaux is one of France's Towns of Art and History and famous for its Brie. The historic centre is a former episcopal city with a wealth of well-preserved heritage.

The town's landmark site is the Gothic Saint-Étienne cathedral built from the 12th to the 14th centuries. Crowned with a Flamboyant tower, it boasts five richly-carved portals, the central one of which has a tympanum depicting the Last Judgement. Inside the cathedral, the delicate and luminous chancel is breathtaking.

Next stop in the town is the Bossuet museum, housed inside the former episcopal palace. The former residence of the bishop and writer Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet is today home to a remarkable collection of sculptures and paintings dating from the 17th to the 19th centuries.

The museum's stunning formal gardens, the Jardin Bossuet, are a lovely place for a stroll with box-edged flowerbeds, a pond with an ornamental rock and 100-year-old lime trees.

Don't miss the annual summer Grand Spectacle Historique de Meaux, a wonderful show about the town's history performed by over 500 actors in period costume!
