Royal Monastery, Bourg-en-Bresse

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.
