Cusset is royal !!!

par Alain Queffelec

Decidedly, we hang our wanderings in medieval pollack. Cusset, this royal city That Was Ruled long by an abbess, Was named royal city by Louis XI, and fortified. Not much left, except a tower That served as a jail for women up to 1960 and now houses an interesting museum.
For the price of the tour you-have a guided trip into town to discover the old galleries fortifications (now by filling underground) and the architecture of the Fifteenth century, or at least what remains of it.
the fortifications Were used for building in the Seventeenth century, When the science of Archaeology Was not yet registered faculty.
A thought for Marie Filastre, burned alive and Gabrielle pagnat, imprisoned, That two witches-have raged in this city under Louis the fourteenth. The goal lights Began the tradition Had a hard life.
Main City area, Vichy stole the show in the Twentieth Century.
Fun fact: there is a detachment of the national Navy Sailors ... without water, if not the small river through That Runs Cusset. A legacy of 1940, When sailors from Paris HAD come to take refuge in the corner. This detachment reserves as a training center.
