Nestling at the heart of the verdant Nièvre Valley, the small floral town of Prémery has an elegant castle at its centre, made up of a 14th-century fortified porch and a 16th-century main building, which was the summer residence of the Bishops of Nevers until the 17th century. After taking a tour of the edifice, discover the old collegiate Church of Saint-Marcel, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. Within its walls lies the tomb of Canon Appeleine as well as a 15th-century Pietà, and, near the church, the façade of an old timber-framed house with corbels.

Before leaving Prémery, be sure to take a walk along the pleasant lake, and then visit the superb Old Stoneware Museum, with displays of traditional stoneware items from Puisaye and Berry as well as remarkable pieces from the Carriès school!

Additional information
Prémery

Capital of the canton, the small town of Prémery is located in the Central West of Nièvre, the county between 977 Nevers Varzy.

The municipality gives priority for several years the flowering of the town. The allocation of a third flower in 2006 confirms the quality and especially the creativity of green space. Landscaping "The Green Casting" has opened the village to the outside.

Another feature! Unique in Burgundy and beyond, the communal forest of Prémery home for more than 15 000 years, Mardelles peat. Hidden, ignored, left out of "common pools", they contain unique information on climate and ecology of ancient times. These Mardelles data libraries are unparalleled. Drilling, extracting peat cores were made by the National Center for Scientific Research, which listed the pollen of plants and trees that were contained for a time. Trunk, buried under meters of sediment, slept there since the time of the pharaohs, their age was determined by the Bureau of Geological and Mining Research in 2800 years. Some of these have been restored Mardelles and fragile ecosystems have recovered: rare plants reappear with the royal fern (fern very rare and protected), very special animals recolonize their breeding territories and forgotten ... The town has valued these sites, greatly assisted financially by the region and invites you to discover these newly developed educational trails.
