Unbelievable but true: for 200 years (from 1560 to 1762), Trévoux was the capital of the Principality of Dombes. The town has preserved several original testimonies to this glorious era. The most monumental of these is, without doubt, the Palais du Parlement de Dombes. It represents the symbol of the independence and privileges of the former principality.
There are only thirteen Parliaments built in France, and the town of Trévoux is privileged to have one!
