Nevers tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Nevers lies on the confluence of the rivers Loire and Nievre and like most of the other towns in Burgundy is best approached from the river.  Here you'll be able to appreciate this noble looking town which has many attractions to tempt the visitor.

Firstly, the Palais Ducal is worth investigating which is one of the earliest chateaux complete with turrets, elegant central tower and Renaissance facade.  The Cathedrale de St-Cyr is also of note displaying almost every architectural style from the 10th - 16th century.

Nevers is known for its faience pottery, a skill introduced by Italian craftsmen brought here by the Gonzaga family in the 16th century.  Head to the Musee Municipal if you'd like to know more!
