Monastère Royal de Brou

Brou, Bourg-en-Bresse, France

Commissioned by Margaret of Austria. After the death of her husband Philip the Handsome (1480-1504), Duke of Savoy, Margaret of Austria decided to build the royal monastery of Brou outside Bourg-en-Bresse to house three sumptuous tombs (one each for her husband and mother, and one for herself). The royal monastery of Brou is formed of monastic buildings arranged around a church and three cloisters. This church is a flamboyant Gothic masterpiece, unique in France.

Musée Unterlinden

Colmar, France

Housed in a former convent dating back to the 13th century, the Musée Unterlinden displays a remarkable group of paintings and sculptures from the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It possesses one of the greatest works of Western art: the Isenheim Altarpiece, executed between 1512 and 1516 by Nicolaus of Haguenau and Grünewald. The museum’s collection of decorative art objects includes silver and gold treasures as well as an exceptional group of hunting and military weapons. Its archaeology section offers a nearly complete overview of the early development of human society, with objects from everyday life (Bergheim mosaic, 3rd century AD) or funerary contexts (gold jewellery from a princely sepulchre).
