TOWN PRESENTATION

Argenton-sur-Creuse, tourist center of the Val de Creuse, took over from the Gallo-Roman Argentomagus in Saint-Marcel.

Ancient fortified place, it has evolved over the ages to become a dynamic and friendly small town, with modern neighborhoods harmoniously with the authenticity of the old quarters of the Middle Ages.

One can still admire some beautiful medieval houses, old houses with galleries and balustrades structurally copper roof and slate gray.

This picturesque village Berry, nicknamed "the Venice of the Berry," has inspired many poets and writers.
