Comment France This Way: the city is quite typical of those in the region and although there are no important monuments Issoudun is pleasant to explore and there are several exciting sights, so a detour is suggested when exploring nearby.
Start your trip with the White Tower (La Tour Blanche), which dominates the town centre and is also the oldest building in the town–all the remnants of a 12th century palace that once stood here, thought to have been built by Richard the Lionheart. It is possible (and proposed) to climb the steps inside the tower to get views across the rooftops of the town. Open only from April to September.
The most significant church in Issoudun is St. Cyr's Church, dating back to the 15th century, although constructed on the site of a much older church, said to have been constructed by Charlemagne (8th century). Inside the church you can see a job of the 16th century that connects Saint-Cyr's life. In Issoudun you can also see the basilica of Notre-Dame du Sacré-Coeur, constructed in the 19th century.
Among the more recent additions to the city, take a look at the Town Hall's contemporary' Fountain with Mirrors,' then the Cité des Metiers d'Art to see works by several modern artists and scupltors.
Finish with a visit to the museum of the city. The Saint-Roch Hospice Museum is based in a medieval hospital and is a nice place to learn more about the city's history (and the hospice building itself). There are also exhibitions of multiple works of art in the museum and a collection of artifacts from ancient pharmacies.
