The Palais Jacques Coeur is a masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic civilian architecture built by one of the most influential men of 15th century France. Jacques Coeur was a merchant, adventurer and Master of the Mint to King Charles VII and his mansion has one of the most functional layouts of its type with the reception rooms separated from the private quarters but connected by beautiful spiral staircases and galleries. Inspired by the residences of the Dukes of Berry, it has fireplaces in every room and is a grandiose work of historical architecture.
