Par Vaux et par Bois - Route no. 55
Au fil de cette balade, vous devrez faire un bond, un très grand bond en arrière : Imaginez-vous en plein Moyen-Âge... dans ces contrées, cela valait le détour !
The Priory of St-Denys en Vaulx belonged to the royal abbey of St-Denys-en-France and benefited from numerous privileges granted successively by Dagobert I and Charles the Bald. It was around 1152 that the monk Guillaume from the abbey of St-Denys in Paris was exiled there and left a very precise description of the joie de vivre that reigned on these lands: "My valley is crowned with delights...".
In addition to this rather cheerful atmosphere, you'll discover Notre-Dame church, the Priory (privately owned) and the centuries-old oak tree at Moulin de Chapt.
Departure point: Car park in front of the Mairie 86220 Vaux-sur-Vienne
