The name Saint-Brisson is traditionally derived that of Saint Brice, to whom the parish church is dedicated.
The Château de Saint-Brisson, built by the de Sancerre family in the early 13th century on the site of a 12th-century construction, is a tourist attraction, benefitting from its proximity to the many historic châteaux of the Loire Valley.
