Brou Church

Recommended
The church, whose late Gothic exuberance is tinged with Renaissance influences, dates from the same era as Chenonceau castle. Look out for the delicate tracery of the stone rood screen; the ornamentation and statuettes of the 74 stalls; the tombs of Marguerite de Bourbon, Philibert le Beau and Marguerite of Austria, the Oratory of Marguerite of Austria, which epitomise the apex of Flemish sculpture in Burgundy; the stained-glass windows on the theme of the resurrection and Marguerite's chapel, with its white marble altarpiece.
