Thevet-Saint-Julien... Your roots at the Museum of the same name!

Thevet Saint Julien: take root!

In any case, Father Aymon, he has taken roots!

It was even a passion for him. For 40 years, he collected roots, stumps, branches, which inspired him, and in which he saw strange things. And what he saw, just by adding simple balls, or a twist of wire, he suddenly made it appear!

And so it was that this very unusual museum, the Museum of Roots, was created, bringing together more than 300 pieces, highlighted by the play of light and shadow.

The Museum of Roots is already worth a visit in itself, and by its very surprising permanent exhibition. Maybe you can also kill two birds with one stone. Indeed it often hosts temporary exhibitions of quality that highlight photographers, painters, ceramists, sculptors....

It may therefore be a good idea to "fix" your visit with one of these exhibitions. Ask around!

Dans cet ouvrage, beaucoup de monuments disparus ressuscitent sous la plume talentueuse de l'auteur : portes de ville, chapelles, églises paroissiales, superbes bâtisses à colombages... renaissent ainsi de leurs cendres pour le plus grand bonheur des amateurs de vieilles pierres. Ses textes, tirés des meilleures sources, vous entraînent dans des duels dignes de romans de cape et d'épée. Vous côtoierez l'Etrange avec les visions, en Boischaut sud, de Jeanne Lorilloux, d'inquiétantes apparitions à Villentrois. Des histoires drôles ou cruelles mettant en relief des travers de nos ancêtres... Vous ferez aussi une excursion dans les profondeurs du Châteauroux souterrain et méconnu dont Jean-Paul Ragot est aujourd'hui l'un des rares, voire le seul témoin oculaire restant
