Bourg-en-Bresse is a medium-sized town in the Ain department.
Today it is home to 41,000 citizens. Formerly called “Burgus” which became “Bourg”, it is made up of medieval houses, private mansions and monuments, including the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the “Grande Dame” of the city centre built at the end of the Middle Ages.
The landscapes and activities are varied, whether in the Revermont between mountains and rivers, the Bresse with its vast expanses and local farms or the Dombes and its ponds.
Admire rare species at the Villars-les-Dombes bird park, marvel at the Royal Monastery of Brou, see your favourite artist at Ainterexpo.
Visit the famous city market, or simply stroll down Rue Alsace Lorraine to admire the Haussmann buildings linking the station to the city centre.
The town is divided into several residential districts, which are easily accessed by public transport. The Peloux, Brou, Préfecture, and Centre-Ville districts are the most popular and a little further away, Péronnas and Saint Denis les Bourg.
If you prefer the countryside, many villages offer the possibility of a small outdoor area such as Viriat, Certines, Servas, Lent and Saint Remy. If you like traditional buildings made from stone, you will enjoy Saint Just, Montagnat, Ceyzeriat and Jasseron.
