Description

Our first stop after leaving the ship will be the Espace Bernadette Soubirous, the final resting place of the simple country girl from Lourdes who claimed to have seen the Virgin 18 times. Her incorrupt body has lied enshrined here in a glass and bronze casket since 1925. We'll then discover the façade of Ducal Palace, considered the first of the Loire's castles. Built on the hill, the palace overlooks the center of the old town, the Republic Square and a big park. The impressive building was constructed for the Count of Nevers in the 15th century, in the place where his old fortress used to be. We'll continue on to the Nevers Cathedral, dedicated to Saints Quriaqos and Julietta, and a national monument of France. We'll visit the Nevers Blue Gold pottery district before finishing up with a tasting of local products. We'll return on board after our tour.
