Saint-Amand-Montrond is a flourishing town on the banks of the Cher where you will find a warm welcome and a dream-nurturing backdrop in the golden heart of the Cité de l’Or.
The town offers a host of sporting and cultural activities, and you can also give way to your emotions when touring the old centre in the glow of lamplights, the fragrance of local produce and the finest gastronomic restaurants. Capital of the Boischaut region, Saint-Amand-Montrond is the most sporting town in the Centre region. It is one of France’s finest "off-the-beaten-track" sites and well worth a visit. A floral town crowned by a "4-flower" classification, its history has been closely linked to the jewellery trade since 1888. The museographical Maison de l’Or offers an interactive, fun presentation where the visitor can experience the worlds of pioneers, gold diggers, creative artists and manufacturers all linked by the precious metal’s common vein.
Enjoy our town to the full!
