We stayed in Geneva for a week and this was a fantastic day trip for us. We really didn't expect to find such a great place here as it didn't seem to be advertised much anywhere. But it was one of the highlights of our stay in Geneva, including the drive there which is through an impressive, wild landscape.

Boy, so much to see in this beautiful renaissance church at the root of so much European history. It goes on and on, talk about value. There are even art galleries. The main church is stunning. I think the travel guides don’t do it justice.

France is full of beautiful and ornate churches and cathedrals, and this is another example of one that is very impressive. It also has a good but sad story that goes along with it. If you are in the Bourg-en-Bresse area, it is certainly worth making the effort to see. We were in Lyon for the Women’s World Cup and visited on an off-day. If you're really into history, I’d also advise renting the headphones and taking the audio tour. The Royal Monastery of Brou is a religious complex of both monastery and church that was built at the beginning of the 16th century by Princess Margaret of Austria, who was the daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I. The church, officially known as Église Saint-Nicolas-de-Tolentin de Brou, was built as a burial tomb and monument in the memory of her husband, Philibert II, who died at the age of 24 due to a hunting accident. Margaret, Philibert II, and his mother are all buried in tombs within the church. The church is recognized as a masterpiece of the Flamboyant Gothic style that reflects the artistry of 16th-century craftsmen. Highlights of the church include the highly ornamented tombs, the altarpiece, delicately carved statues, the carved wooden choir stalls, and the lace-like, intricate stone patterns that cover the front of the church. It also has a colorful tile roof that reminds me of St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. Ironically, the monastery was built to house the Augustinian monks, whose primary responsibility was praying for the people buried in the church. Today, the monastery houses a museum detailing the history and construction methods of the buildings as well as a fine art museum. The art collection contains French, Flemish, and Italian paintings from the 15th to the 20th century and sculptures from the 12th to the 17th century.

Margaret of Austria had this church and monastery built for her husband Philipp. It has survived in its original overwhelming beauty for almost 500 years. Its finesse is shown in the details of the art work.

Beautiful place in excellent condition. The abbey church is lovely. we really loved walking about the place. Excellent permenant collection of art. We did not much care for the Special Exhibition about "The Veil" which sounded much better on the web site than it was. It just left us flat. A shame because there's so much that can be done with it.
