It’s all about art: Monastere Royal de Brou, France

In the early 16th century, Margaret of Austria (Marguerite d’Autriche) (1480-1530) had the royal monastery of Brou built to commemorate her love for her late husband Phillibert II, who died prematurely at the age of 24. And she never saw it completed (she died while living in Belgium).
