Rendez-vous at the Palais Jacques Cœur in Bourges
The city home of the famous 15th century financier
The “Grant’Maison” of Jacques Coeur, financier to king Charles VII, was built in the mid-15th century in Bourges and is one of the most beautiful examples of Gothic civic architecture in France. The relatively unadorned western facade, built on the Gallo-Roman town walls, contrasts starkly with the richly decorated eastern facade overlooking the street.
The Palais Jacques Coeur is a fine example of the Flamboyant style of the late Middle Ages and its attention to the comfort of the inhabitants prefigures the great residences of the Renaissance.
