The historic village of Moulins-Engilbert
nestles peacefully in the rolling green countryside in
the heart of Burgundy, right on the edge
of the Morvan Regional Park.
As you stroll through the village, once home to the Dukes
of Nevers, you can explore the ruins of the ancient castle,
the collegiate church of St John the Baptist,
the salt storehouse and the many picturesque old houses.
Today, Moulins-Engilbert is famous for
its livestock auction (“Marché au Cadran”)
where breeders and buyers from all over Europe gather
on Mondays for the sheep market and on Tuesdays for the
Charolais cattle market. You can visit the Charolais Museum,
which will take you back through the agricultural history
of the Morvan region, providing an insight into past and
present rural life.
Moulins-Engilbert has a good choice of local shops, a supermarket and several restaurants.
