It was during the Middle Ages that the town becomes truly prosperous. In 1232, Moulins was granted a franchise charter. In the 14th century, it became the seat of the ducal administration and prospered, reaching its peak in the 15th century. It was during this time that the famous Moulins Triptych is painted by the Master of Moulins; it has since been considered a masterpiece Renaissance art. After rejoining the Kingdom of France, the city began to develop along the left bank of the Allier River, thanks to the construction of a new bridge.
Considered one of the last great untamed rivers in Europe, the Allier is home to a wealth of plant and animal life. Its banks are the perfect setting for pleasant walks. If you want to birdwatch, head for Val d’Allier! To relax as a family, you can stop at the Ovive Aquatic Centre, with its many pools. You can also stroll across the Quais d’Allier and the Square Général Leclerc.
Among the religious landmarks not to be missed are the Notre-Dame Cathedral, a masterpiece of flamboyant Gothic architecture; the Moulins Cathedral, also in a flamboyant Gothic style that dates back to the 15th century, and the Saint-Pierre Church with its neo-gothic bell tower... Don’t miss the Clock Tower either, with its automatons, or the Anne de Beaujeu Pavilion, both buildings that are precious evidence of the city’s medieval and Renaissance periods.
