From the massive Porte des Jacobins to the half-timbered houses of Hugon and Gorrevod, the town centre of Bourg-en-Bresse will take you on a journey several centuries back in time. Its town centre, with pedestrianised streets, is an opportunity to see some of the town's private mansions, with their wonderful frontages.
Take some time to really soak up the feeling and atmosphere of this busy town centre, before heading over to the Notre Dame de l’Annonciation cathedral: this used to be a church, before being renovated during the Renaissance. A mix of various styles, and is very definitely worth visiting!
