Bourbon-l’Archambault: historic heart of Bourbonnais.

Built on the rock that dominates the city, the Château de Bourbon offers striking remains, the splendor and style of which are representative of royal architecture at the end of the 13th century. The first fortified castle of the Lords of Bourbon then became the symbol of their power.
Still considered today as the family home of all the Bourbons, it saw the birth of the youngest Capetian dynasty.
Three sites and several tour options offer you, alone, with family or friends, to explore a page of French history and to discover an emblematic site of Bourbonnais.
Listed as a Historic Monument since 1862
