The tourist office proposes you some guided tours in July and August. In season are organized some shows called «les nuits costumées d'Aubigny»: some volunteers actors bring you back in the times and stories of the city of the Stuarts from 6 centuries ago. 

Château des Stuarts

Histoire d'Aubigny

6 centuries ago, in the name of l'Auld Alliance (treaty of mutual help between France and Scotland signed in the 16th century), Jean Stuart de Darnley, Scotland Army chef, helped to end to the one hundred years war. Charles VII gave him then the town of Aubigny sur Nère. In 1512, a fire destroyed Aubigny sur Nère, city of the Stuarts. Robert Stuart, son of Jean, rebuilds the city. This explains why we find some half timbered houses built on 1 or 2 generations (the most remarkable is the house of François Premier), the Chateau des Stuarts (actual City Hall and museum) and the Castle of la Verrerie in Oizon.
