This museum was the property in the 19th of the general Bertrand (1773-1844), one the closest friend of Napoléon Bonaparte. Nowadays it contains different collections of art. You have a gallic section, a medieval section, a section about Napoleon and Bertrand, a section about 19e and 20e centuries art, and my favorit room, a reconstitution of an old Berry kitchen. They are also from time to time special exhibitions...
No fees to enter ; the museum is free.
Located next to the Museum Bertrand, the Saint-Martial church is a curiosity of Chateauroux . It was built in the12th century, and has a single nave of Romance origin covered with a wood cradle. Its bell-tower of the Renaissance style, was built by a middle-class man of Chateauroux, Pierre Vurignon (15th century). The church contains also some treasures like latin inscriptions and holy wooden statues.

This is a local bakery which so many good things to eat, it hard to find room for lunch or dinner.
I love their regional specialities like galette de chevre and galette de pommes de terror.
Favorite Dish: Please go hungry!
You will want one of nearly everything here.
Joe from Maine began this place in 1956 when a NATO base housed 8000 Americans here.
He died in May 2009, but his daughter, Annette, run this place which serves hamburgers, chili, burrittos, enchilades, etc.
6 days a week. This is a beloved American place that now serves mostly the French. However, I am betting that France will have the Americans return here very soon.
I love this region because I love camping, birds, fishing, horseback riding, and friendly people.
It isn't far from Paris and I prefer the country whenever I can get away from the French capital.
Fondest memory: The birds singing, the forests, the blue skies, and the lakes are what I love here.
I come here when I have enough of medieval history and want just to be stress free.
I love that it is very calm, the buses are free, the streets are straight and easy to drive, and the people are friendly.
Nature is what is on display here and for all to enjoy.
Fondest memory: Nature! The birds signing! The kindness of the people!
