Description

A view of the facade of the Palais Jacques-Coeur à Bourges, built in the Flamboyant Gothic style. Above the main entrance is a baldachin empty of any statue, which is then surmounted with a large pointed arched window. A tower appears to the left of the central bay. In front of the building is a statue of Jacques-Coeur himself. A protective, iron gate creates a perimeter around the statue.
