The Venice of Berry

Houses with galleries and balustrades

We are 300 km from Paris, in the Indre region, and we are in Venice!
Well, okay, in terms of surface, it is probably exaggerated!
But how can we not point out these places so calm, so colorful, with its houses with galleries and balustrades which are reflected in the Creuse.
To enjoy this picture at best, go to the old bridge! And, if you are brave, climb up to the terrace of the chapel of the Bonne-Dame.

 

Let's admire...
Yes, it's true, the Gallo-Roman city of Argentomagus, its excavations, its garden and its museum, are not far away and must be seen. Yes, it's true, there is also the extraordinary Museum of Chemistry and Men's Elegance, not to be missed, and I'll tell you about it later, but, for the moment, let's simply admire what the photos show us... to go and feel these colors and this softness on the spot, it's a good idea!

Les rues ont un nom, à Argenton comme ailleurs. Mais combien sommes-nous à nous être demandé ce qui se cache derrière chaque plaque ?
Saviez-vous qu’Argenton peut s’enorgueillir de posséder une rue qui n’est qu’un escalier ? Et sauriez-vous situer la place de la Paix, la rue de la Calandre, et bien d’autres encore...
à destination du simple promeneur ou de l’autochtone qui souhaite satisfaire sa curiosité, ce livre fourmille de renseignements sur la ville, son histoire, ses habitants, ses monuments actuels ou passés et bien sûr, ses rues.
