Photographer's Note

The centre of Bourges sits on a hill rising from the marshes of the River Yèvre, in the shadow of its main attraction, the magnificent early Gothic cathedral. Having seen the cathedral, many people move straight on, but the rest of the city is worth at least a couple of hours of wandering, with a number of ancient hôtels and burghers' houses displaying the wealth of a place that was built to rival the ruling provincial city of Dijon.

These "twins" are located at Rue Bourbonnoux, parallel to rue Moyenne to the east of the cathedral.
