Moulins, in the heart of France

© Atout France-Ooshot @WorldElse
« Nourished » by the River Allier, the capital of the Bourbons can be proud of its heritage. It’s impossible to count all the remarkable buildings here: the cathedral, of course, but also the Jacquemart Tower, the Palais de Justice and even the Grand Café with its superb Belle-Époque decor. Not forgetting the National Centre for Stage Costumes, unique in the world, bringing together an incredible collection of costumes and sets from the Opéra de Paris and the Comédie Française, no less. This is certainly a beautiful journey!

The priory church of Saint-Pierre & Saint-Paul

The priory church in Souvigny is quite simply the largest religious monument in the department, and one of the most beautiful. It’s home to the funereal necropolis of the Bourbons

Gourmet moments

The Maison Les Palets d’or is the city’s symbol of artisan excellence. For more than a century, this legendary chocolatier has delighted young and old alike.

A moment of relaxation at the Grand Café, the famous establishment with precious Art Nouveau decor that is, understandably, extremely well-preserved!
