La Charité sur Loire - city of light and books

Once known as Seyr, or "City of Light", La Charité sur Loire is a delightful town found in west Burgundy, close to the departmental capital city of Nevers. The town is characterised by a huge bridge that spans the Loire, and by an unusually high number of bookshops, particularly antiquarian and specialist bookshops, earning it the second soubriquet of "Town of Books".

Charm and heritage

La Charité sur Loire is a town of considerable charm, and its rich history and heritage are evident everywhere you look. From the wonderful bridge to the ancient streets, from the ruined priory to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, it is not surprising that this was recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1998. The town is also known as a pilgrim town, an important way marker on the ancient route taken by the faithful on their way to Santiago de Compostela.

A modern edge

In spite of all its history, La Charité also has a decidedly modern approach to life, and particularly celebrates the good things in life, i.e. the famous Burgundian gastronomy. The town has a full complement of shops and services, leaving you wanting for nothing, but its real glory for many Francophiles is its fantastic range of superb restaurants where you can make the most of the very best of French food and wine.

Great music and fabulous food are an inspired combination, even Shakespeare thought so! Here in La Charité sur Loire you can enjoy this tasty marriage of life's pleasures, as not only does the town have a celebrated gastronomy but also it plays host to a number of musical festivals throughout the year.
